On Thursday the 28th June, we (the school Ambassadors) were invited to participate in a special day for all the schools in our Academy group. We visited Walton Hall Academy, which is a special school in Eccleshall Staffordshire. The purpose of the day was to collaborate with pupils from all across the different schools and to discover more about the Shaw Education charity.

We have been very fortunate to have been able to use the Radio Station resource at Seabridge Primary School
Being part of The Shaw Education Trust allows schools to network with each other and share resources. This enables our pupils to access opportunities which would otherwise not be possible, or would incur significant costs.
Yesterday, I had the pleasure of accompanying our swimming team to the gala event. This competition was held at Newcastle under Lyme Independent School.
Congratulations to Mrs B Magee who has been awarded a special award from The Shaw Education Trust for being an "Exceptional Member of the Support Staff”. Mrs Magee is employed as a higher-level teaching assistant and her varied role allows her to work with each and every child here at The Meadows, during the course of the week.
This morning, classes one and two were very lucky to have special visitors of the four legged kind.
Mr Lovatt (one of our parents) and Miss Roper kindly offered to bring along 2 of their lambs from their farm. We met Rosie and Peach.
They are both 3 weeks old and have been hand reared, as they were each one of triplets. Sheep can only raise two lambs at the same time as they only have two teats.
Today in assembly I had the pleasure of awarding every child in class 2 a certificate for their swimming achievements..
Class 2 have been going swimming at Chesterton High School since January. We decided to extend our lessons to 45 minutes, rather than the usual 30 minutes, as we are now receiving additional Sports Premium funding from the DfE.
This week in assembly we looked at The British Value: "Individual Liberty".
It’s easy to buy things without thinking about where they’ve come from. It’s everyone’s responsibility to make sure what we buy has come from a safe and sustainable source.
Fairtrade is a simple yet incredibly important idea – it’s all about giving the people who produce the things you buy a fair price for their work.
World Religion Day
On Monday the 22nd of January, Mrs Procter led an assembly about World Religion Day. It is celebrated on the third Sunday in January and is a day where all religions are celebrated to unite people of all faiths and help us all to live in harmony. It shows that all religions have similarities and share important beliefs.
Mrs Procter reminded us of the different religious symbols:
Today I had the pleasure of eating cakes with a group of children who deserve a special award for their continued outstanding efforts with home learning tasks. This is an opportunity to acknowledge that so many of our children have developed excellent learning habits at home. They not only complete set tasks to a very high standard, but do so with a smile and great pride.
Today I attended a service at the Madeley Heath monument to pay respects to all the service men and women who have lost their lives in the Great Wars and the conflicts of more recent years. It was lovely to see so many of our families from The Meadows, who had taken time in their weekend, to join the local community in such a important moment of reflection.
