Headteacher's Welcome

RichardDear Parents:

On behalf of the staff, the School Governors and the Local Authority, may I take this opportunity to welcome you and your children to The Meads Primary School.

 

Here at The Meads we believe that education is a partnership between home and school and we hope to strengthen links with you as your children move through our school, enabling them to develop and realise their full potential across the breadth of the curriculum we provide.

The Meads is a values based school. Core values (which include British Values) are promoted through all aspects of school life. Values essential to developing self-respect and regard for others, and for making a positive contribution to society are discussed and explored with children in lessons, in assemblies and in everyday interactions. Values such as respect, enthusiasm, resilience, tolerance, and empathy form part of our programme. We strongly believe in making our school a central part of our community and in giving children the skills and understanding to make a positive contribution to that community – values based education is crucial in this.

We are proud of our school; our most recent OFSTED report recognised that we are a ‘good’ school that is continuing to improve; indeed we were included in the list of the top 100 most improving schools in 2014-15. Recent End of Key Stage 2 results revealed rates of progress in reading, writing and maths greater than the national averages and better than the majority of other primary schools in Luton.

We hope that you will be able to visit us and meet the people who work here. We look forward to getting to know you and we are confident that your child's time here with us will be enjoyable, successful and memorable.

Yours faithfully
R. P. Jenkins
