Meadows First School 'wellbeing wheel'
Meadows Mouse is our 'learning Code' mascot which the school council introduced in order to encourage children to be independent and ready to learn when they come to school. Each week we celebrate children that have shown one of these qualities in school (focused, determined, enthusiastic, organised). Our aim is to help children become more resilient in their learning - developing the skills needed to risk take and learn from mistakes.
In Years 1 to 4 the children follow the National Curriculum 2014. Click here for the Parents' Guide to the National Curriculum. In the Early years we follow the Foundation Stage guidance for our curriculum coverage. Click here for our Early Years information pages, and here for our classroom links.
The children are taught in mixed ability groups throughout the school. Emphasis is placed on matching the curriculum encountered with a child's personal development. We believe that the quality of teaching and learning is at the centre of our desire to raise standards. We use a range of resources as a starting point for our topics: challenges, quality texts, questions, pupils' interests and own enquiry, and world events.
