Executive Principal's Welcome
On behalf of our school community I would like to extend a very warm welcome to Mereside Church of England Primary Academy.
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.
This website is aimed at helping with that partnership providing information about all aspects of the school.
At our school we believe that all children can achieve well through effort. They are our future and therefore, together, we must provide a strong foundation on which they can build. To meet this, we offer a broad, balanced and creative curriculum that allows and encourages each child to develop the skills, knowledge and understanding they need to become lifelong learners.
The Christian ethos of our school underpins and permeates all that we do with a clear spiritual and moral dimension. Whilst the Christian faith is the starting point and our central focus, the beliefs and practices of other faiths are respected. It is hoped that parents and children of all faiths and none will find our school a welcoming place.
With my very best wishes,
- On Friday 18th November, 2022 we will be raising awareness for ‘Children in Need’. Children can come to school dressed in casual clothes.
- The PTA will be holding a school Disco for all our children. Please view the PTA consent form below for exact details of the event schedule for each year group. The Disco will take place after school on Friday 2nd December, 2022
- We all know that buying Christmas jumpers each year can be quite expensive and they are only worn for such a short period of time. We are looking for donations of Christmas Clothing etc which we can then sell on the playground on the 1st December.
- We would be very grateful if you were able to your donate your unwanted items to school as part of our Bag2school fundraiser. The more they weigh, the more they pay!
- This year for our Harvest Festival Service will take place at St Giles Church on Wednesday 19th October, 2022. Leading up to this date we are going to be collecting items for the Shrewsbury Food Bank.
