Welcome to Mereside CE Primary School
On behalf of our school community I would like to extend a very warm welcome to Mereside CE Primary School website.
We really value the partnership between home and school and see your child's learning journey through their time with us as a joint venture between you and all members of staff here at our school.
At our school we believe that all of our children can achieve highly and become valued members of society. They are our future and therefore together we must provide a strong foundation on which they can build. Read full welcome message
