Meadow Community Primary School
“Inspiring a love of learning”
Core Values (Rules)
Ready, Respectful, Safe
Meadow Primary School
Meadow Primary School is a large primary school in the Great Sutton area of Ellesmere Port, which opened in January 1993, following the amalgamation of the Infant and Junior Schools. It caters for children aged 4-11 and benefits from a popular onsite before and after school club which also operates during the school holidays.
‘Getting the culture right is pivotal. With the right culture, the strategies that are used become less important. The culture is set by the way that the adults behave.’ Paul Dix
Ready, Respectful, Safe
Meadow Primary School is committed to creating an environment where exemplary behaviour is at the heart of productive learning. Everyone is expected to maintain the highest standards of personal conduct, to accept responsibility for their behaviour and encourage others to do the same. In order to ensure that all members of our school community feel secure at Meadow, we commit to employing a trauma informed approach to all interactions.
We want to create an environment that is safe, where everyone feels respected and where everyone is ready to engage in learning.
May I take this opportunity to warmly welcome you to Meadow Primary School.
The staff, governors, parents and pupils are extremely proud of our school and the way that everyone works together to make it a happy place to work and learn. We believe that education should be an exciting journey and our aim is that every child leaves our school with a love of learning that will remain with them throughout their lives.
We constantly strive to give the children the best possible education by providing high quality teaching and learning, outstanding care and support through an excellent child-centred curriculum
This website is intended to help you familiarise yourself with the values and routines of school life, but a visit to the school gives you the opportunity to see these in action. I encourage you to make an appointment and come and see and feel for yourself the nurturing and inspirational ethos we have developed.

World Book Day 2022
On Thursday 3rd March, Meadow had a day of activities to celebrate World Book Day. We had a wonderful assembly from local author Susanne T Schroder, logged onto live streams with Michael Rosen, Liz Pichon and Emma Carroll, and had a school wide book swap. One of the activities that children enjoyed most was buddied reads with different classes across the infant and junior school.
We also bought to a close our Readathon sponsored read, with the children in school raising £1100!
Reading for Pleasure
A big thank you to all our parents who came to our Book Fair in October. We sold a total of £1400 worth of books which means we had £840 to spend on books for school. Because of this, every child was able choose some books that they wanted to see in school. Each class then had the opportunity to open some wonderful new books as 'gifts' which are now kept in classrooms as class readers.
Reception 2020-2021 Memories
As our Reception children move on, ready for year 1, we celebrate their first year at Meadow with this video.
Some of our Year 6 children have created a video to deal with the problems of litter on our school grounds following break times. Every class has watched the video and new bins have been installed in all the play areas. We are seeing a positive impact from their message. Thank you girls.
Lockdown 3 Key Worker afternoon activities
Thank you to everyone who sent in pictures for our reading challenge. It is lovely to see everyone enjoying reading so much. See who you can spot in this movie!
World Book Day 2021
All the teachers, teaching assistants and senior leadership team have chosen their favourite books from their own times in primary school. Try to guess which teacher's favourite book it is before their one sentence review comes up! I wonder how many of the books you have read, and if there are any that you would now like to read from the review!
Stoke Association Thank you Movie
In December our children raised £2331.60 for the Stroke Association by taking part in a Santa Dash.
