Visitors to Meldreth Primary School often comment on our friendly ethos, and that we are a very happy school. We work hard to provide a calm, organised and orderly atmosphere in school in which children behave well, and where all individuals, both staff and children alike, share a common respect for one another and are part of the team within school.
We positively promote self-discipline and teach our children to have a sense of responsibility not only for themselves, but also others around them – both locally and in the wider world.
Every child at Meldreth is an individual and the creation of positive relationships with parents and carers is fundamental to our principles.
Our children’s views and opinions are sought and valued. We have a flourishing School Council and Anti-Bullying Council, where ideas are shared and decisions made that have led to real developments in school. This sense of ownership and belonging means that our children are extremely proud of their school.
We recently gained the “Healthy Schools” award and we take every opportunity to promote healthy lifestyles’ and healthy minds, as well as healthy bodies.
We work hard at Meldreth to provide a wide range of opportunities to motivate and inspire children, whatever their interests, talents or learning styles, we offer a rich and stimulating curriculum that allows our children to ask questions, explore ideas and develop their creativity. This is achieved in a variety of ways, through visits to places of educational and cultural interest, interesting visitors working in school, residential visits to outdoor centres, special curriculum days or themes and/or the use of a specialist teacher for sport or modern languages.
In addition, we offer a wide range of additional curricular activities and clubs, run by staff, children and visiting coaches and experts, which are very popular.
There is always something happening at our school and we believe that everyone can play their part to make our school the thriving and happy place that you see.
