Welcome to our colourful and informative website, which gives you a flavour as a potential parent of what we have to offer at our fabulous school. If you are an existing parent / carer then I am sure you will enjoy celebrating pupil achievement and accessing key information easily – including our highly informative newsletters.
I really do love being Headteacher at Temple Meadow. Children here are really special – full of fun, enjoyment and with a real thirst for knowledge and learning experiences. It is our school aim to raise standards for all children while at the same time, keeping them safe, providing fun and enjoyment and linking real life experiences to learning.
We use an Irresistible Learning approach to the curriculum which makes learning memorable, exciting, fun and intriguing. Within the curriculum we utilise drama, role play, Mantle of the Expert and plenty of art and design to bring learning alive. Throughout the school you will see stunning displays which showcase the learning including fabulous writing outcomes from our topics.
Our last Ofsted judged us as 'GOOD' overall which was a fantastic achievement! We are now continuing our hard work and efforts in order to build on this. Our key priority is improving maths outcomes at KS2 and we have started an exciting journey using 'Singapore Maths' to support this.
We have a skilled and dedicated teaching and support team– highly skilled to meet diverse learner needs. Leadership is strong and with a clear understanding of what we need to do to improve further.
We are a real community school – proud of our chain making heritage (we are the only UK school with a fully functioning and authentic chain shop). We are proud of our cultural diversity – we celebrate a wide range of festivals and occasions – from Christmas, Eid, Diwali through to Royal Wedding (Kings and Queens Street Party). We care for our environment as a community on our ECO Mufti days when we all get stuck in planting, growing, painting and clearing.
We cater for the needs of all pupils and have recently implemented a new approach to SEN and other provisions to help children close the gap in their learning.
We cater for pupils from Nursery through to Year 6 and can take 60 pupils in each year group.
We now offer before school, after school and holiday club provision via Kids Club (Graded Good in their last inspection). We are attached to Health for Living - Flying Start daycare nursery.
I do hope you enjoy your visit to our website.
