Parent / Carer cars on site before and after school

We have recently been experiencing significant problems in our car park in relation to staff
members being able to safely park their car in order to start work on time. In order to ensure that the car park is safe and staff are at their posts we are asking parents and carers the following:

Before school (up to 9am)  If you are dropping off your child please do so in the main car park (with the round about). 

After school (up to approximately 3.20pm)   If you are picking up your child please do not bring your car on site at all before approximately 3.20pm. We are happy to supervise your child up to 3.30pm to aid you. At 3.20 the car parks should be free of transport vehicles and accessible. If, in the unusual circumstances, the car parks still have transport vehicles in them at this time, please either wait off site to enter the car park or park off site and walk in to collect your child.

Many thanks in anticipation of your support with this challenging issue!

Charity Walk For Peace.   Every year the Ahmadiyya Muslim community at the mosque next to the school raises money for charity and have given a considerable amount to Meadow High over the last few years. We were invited again to support them in their venture this year, named the Charity Walk for Peace, so four members of Meadow staff and another       volunteer headed out on Sunday 29th April to take on the  challenge of the 5.7 miles walk around Windsor Great Park.  Despite the    bitterly cold weather that weekend, everyone was in good spirits and completed the walk in    approximately 1 hour 35 minutes.  Around £50 was raised in the end.  Photos on the school website.

Dance Workshops   

Last Friday, 11th May,selected Dance students were able to take part in a one-off dance workshop here at Meadow. For students who have picked Dance as a subject option, this was a great opportunity to collate

evidence towards their coursework, learn from a new practitioner and most importantly have fun! All students were incredibly well behaved for our guests Lisa and Giselle from NoBiz dance school and were able to name and demonstrate loads of key dance terms/moves. Students got to take part in learning a street routine, musical theatre piece and take part in dance games. Overall the workshop was hugely successful and got students to work with others from different year groups and build on their confidence. Some of the senior students being an amazing support as usual to our younger students and representing the Performing Arts at it's best! We look forward to holding some more workshops in the near future, especially for those who were not able to be selected this time. Keep up the amazing work dancers!!!
