Coronavirus (Covid-19) catch-up premium

As part of the government's support for schools in addressing the impact of coronavirus, we have received £80 per child for the 2020-21 academic year.  The money is being used to enhance teaching and learning and ensure that our children make the best possible progress.

Following formative and summative assessments by staff, we have identified pupils who would benefit from targeted intervention programmes. 

For further details please see our reviewed Covid school catch up plan (Pdf).


British values

The Department for Education has said: "We want to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect, and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs." 

At The Meadows, we are very proud of the diverse range of activities we provide for the children and we strive to demonstrate these values. Please see our overview of how we ensure that the children of The Meadows understand British Values

If you feel you may have something to offer the school linked with British Values (or know someone else who might be keen to), we would love to hear from you. Please contact the school office.

Sport and PE premium funding

What is the sports premium?

All schools receive additional funding from the government, to support the development of sport and physical education (PE) across their school. Funding must be used to facilitate additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport within the school, and to encourage healthy and active lifestyles. More information can be found on PE and sport premium for primary schools.
