Welcome back to a new term and a new year to all our children and their families!
We are in the process of planning two events for parents this term. The first is a Maths workshop which will be held on Wednesday 25th March at 6.00pm. We are hoping that as many of you as possible will come along as we intend to give parents more information about how Maths has changed in the new curriculum and explain our approach to teaching calculation.
We will also be holding a meeting on Thursday 5th March at 7.00pm to give parents information about how we teach sex and relationships as part of our Science curriculum.
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:
-have an excellent arts and cultural offer
-are forward-thinking and open to development
-are committed to investing in our staff and young people
-are committed to listening to our learners and providing opportunities for our community
-have an effective approach to building sustainable relationships with arts and cultural organisations
-value and embed the arts and culture through a broad and balanced curriculum
We are very proud that we have received national recognition for our provision!
Thank you and well done to children and parents that brought in food for our Harvest celebration. 66 bags of food and goods were collected by the New Hope Trust who were very impressed with our efforts.
