Mereside CE Primary Academy
Underpinned by the core Christian value of love, our school's vision is to be at the heart of our community; supporting all our children to aspire and flourish, becoming caring global citizens who value and celebrate diversity, being good neighbours to all .
We take inspiration from the words of Jesus :(John 13:34) “I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. ”
At the core of our schools work is the Christian value of love. We link all other values that we teach to this; helping our children to understand and learn from God's example of selfless love.
Our motto :
"Love to learn, learn to love"
