Welcome back!

We are looking forward to a new term ahead and enjoyed welcoming children to their new classes this week. Celebration assembly begins on Friday 6th September at 9am for Key Stages 1 and 2, and on Thursday 12th September at 9am for Reception classes. 

Reading Together

There are many spaces in which to enjoy reading at The Meadows. Reading is a key to learning. We use a reading spine throughout school to ensure that all children gain access to a wide range of texts and authors. Our recommended reading lists for each year group can also be found in the curriculum section of our website. Throughout the year, we look forward to welcoming families to our reading breakfasts and workshops, which are all planned to support children's reading development.
