Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

This half term the Humanities Department, along with the whole school, are having a big push on reusing, reducing and recycling our waste.

The phrase Reduce, Reuse, Recycle is often used when we talk about how to be more environmentally friendly, how to be greener, how to be ecologically sound and how to live sustainably.

With the students help, we would like to create a display using recycled goods. With this is in mind we are asking all students to bring in any bottle caps or tops. They can be from milk cartons, soft drinks, sports bottles etc. There will be a box at the front Reception where students can place them.

Thank you for your support in being a greener school.

Miss Bergin and Miss Robinson

Maths Club

We are starting a new Maths Club at lunchtimes.  It is an opportunity for pupils to come along and receive support for any extended learning opportunities.  Maths Club will take place in Room 1 every Friday lunchtime starting this week (both lunch sittings).   Pupils from all year groups are welcome !  Mrs Mistry - Maths Faculty Lead


Friends of Meadow Annual General Meeting (AGM) Monday 11 March 2019

We will be holding the Friends of Meadow Annual General Meeting in school at 5.30pm on Monday 11th March 2019. 

At the AGM, we review finances and appoint our committee, as well as cover regular business such as looking back on past and planning future events.  An agenda will be available on the FoM page on the school website and on in the next few days. 

All parents, carers and school staff are welcome to attend.  We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible - it's a great way to learn about how we can help Meadow while having some fun.

Reminder—Next Week is World Book Day and Literacy Week

This year we will be celebrating the art of storytelling by exploring the theme of Storytelling & Me.

All week students will have the opportunity to build their skills and confidence through taking part in storytelling work..

On Friday 8 March we are having a non-uniform day.  The theme is any story your child knows – fiction or non-fiction ... having fun wearing something students like is the main thing!

Dyspraxia Group Coffee Morning

At the next Dyspraxia Group Coffee Morning on 14 March at 10.00am, we will be joined by the Hillingdon Parent Carer Forum.  All parents are welcome to come along.  Further meetings for this year are as follows: 16 May 2019 and 26 June 2019

We have been asked by Hillingdon Parent Carer Forum to spread awareness about the following website: Hillingdon Talks: Hillingdon Paediatric Speech and Language Therapy (SALT)

You can access information about the three specialist SALT teams (Early Years, Mainstream, Hearing Impairment), including making a referral. Three teams but one service!

There are also links to other speech and language websites, charities, groups and information.

Please take a look at what the teams can offer, and to access information and support.

Here is some artwork, produced by one of our pupils, Sam M in Year 14, Class KN. 

Great work Sam !
