We are very excited to have begun our journey towards achieving UNICEF's Rights Respecting Schools Award. Refer to the latest newsletter from the Head for more information.
Well done to parents and children-we managed to send off over 50 bags of food and other essentials after our Harvest collection for the New Hope Trust in Watford.
We are celebrating again!
St Meryl School has been successful in achieving the Hertfordshire Quality Standards award (HQS) in recognition of its high quality provision in the early years.
In working towards HQS the school has worked alongside the local authority’s advisors through a quality assurance process. The focus of HQS is on leadership, parent and child participation and action planning. It also involved a very comprehensive environmental audit.
This is a tremendous achievement and one that we are very proud of.
Our thanks go to all of the Nursery and Reception class parents for their support and invaluable contribution towards the work that has taken place in order to achieve this award.
Thanks to Mrs Nye and her team of practitioners in the early years for the hard work and commitment that they have shown in ensuring that our children get the very best start to their school life in the early years.
And of course, thank you to our children. They are the reason we work together to do what we do.
Thank you to all of those parents who attended our maths workshop and our sex and relationships education parent information session. Feedback from parents was incredibly positive-please visit the parent page to see all of the comments made.
CONGRATULATIONS to Mrs Parker and the Eco-Council. In addition to our bronze eco-award we have now been awarded the silver award too. Well done!
We have been awarded Artsmark!
Artsmark is Arts Council England's flagship programme which enables schools and other organisations to evaluate, strengthen and celebrate their arts and cultural provision. It is delivered by Trinity College London and 10 regional bridge organisations drive participation. Achieving Artsmark means that St Meryl has a number of very special qualities. It demonstrates that we:

-are committed to investing in our staff and young people

We are very proud that we have received national recognition for our provision!
