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.

Year 2 have been learning about Africa and have explored Cultural Stories. The children wrote stories about going on a safari where they came across different setting s and animals.
The focus is to engage and motivate children in Writing. So with the help of MrBateman the children have been recording stories using Soundscape.
We have held two parent workshops about Sign for Feelings and Behaviour over the past two weeks. We have been using signing throughout the school in all of our lessons and out in the playground as well. The children enjoy the signing and it is a super way to extend their vocabulary. If you missed the workshops and you'd like to find out more, please let us know.

We enjoyed a fantastic evening just before half-term at the school Monster Mash. Everyone dressed up in wonderful costumes, we had lots of snacks and a great disco. The evening made a total of £332.19. Thank you very much to the PTA who decorated the hall and ran the event.
On the 16th October, a Victorian Headmaster came and visited Year 5. We played with Victorian toys such as match sticks, spinners, flip books and skittles. We also dressed up and then took part in a Victorian school day including singing hymns, reading, writing and arithmetic. We had a great time!
Following a positive trial of Peer Massage in selected classes, we now plan to roll out this popular and successful intervention across the whole school . Please watch our video on Peer Massage to find out what its for and how it is used...
On the 17th June the whole school took part in E-Safety week. Each year group joined in with workshops and assemblies and we learnt so much about keeping ourselves safe online. Each year group had to be creative in presenting their understanding of different topics such as ‘year 5 and social networking’ and ‘year 6 and digital footprint’.
Watch our videos and see what our final projects looked like!
Information and communications technology (ICT) is part of our lives. We use it every day for study, work, entertainment, shopping and getting in touch with our family and friends. It is one of the quickest and easiest ways of finding information, sharing idea and working with other people.
And like everything, it has to be used safely and responsibly. As well as opportunities, there are also risks that we need to be aware of and guard against. As children get older they spend more and more of their waking hours connected to digital devices—impacting their reputations, learning opportunities, and futures.
This area is designed to provide you with information and links to a variety of different websites to help you understand the benefits and the risks.
This has been a very exciting week at The Meads Primary School. We have been celebrating Science week. Here are some clips and videos highlighting what we have been doing throughout the school.
16/04/2013 - Parents of children who are due to start school in September 2013 will be receiving their offer letter from Luton Borough Council this week. If you have successfully secured a place at The Meads Primary School, we will be in contact with you in due course to tell you about all the exciting transition events we have planned for you and your child.
On the 8th of March, Henry Winkler visited the school to talk to the children about his learning difficulties and how he overcame his dyslexia to become a world famous actor and children's author. As part of our Achievement for All programme, The Meads was chosen to receive Henry's visit, and the children were inspired and encouraged by his wonderful speech. And what a lovely man too!
At The Meads Primary School every individual is valued for who they are and what they contribute to the school. The Values
Education Programme is intended to support the personal, social and spiritual development of every pupil throughout the school. The whole staff team and all pupils are involved in promoting values and recognising where others are 'living the values'. The values developed through the Values Education Programme have been selected by pupils, staff and parents as values which are important within the school community and which will be important throughout life.
The Meads have been awarded the Quality Mark as a Values-based School. As well as this, our work with the environment has been recognised with the Eco Schools Silver Award. We have also been awarded the Achievement for All Quality Standards Award for our work in raising the aspirations, access and achievement of vulnerable and disadvantaged pupils.
