School Meals
 
We are proud of our school meals which have an emphasis on fresh and healthy food. We have many members of staff who eat our school lunches in the hall with the children. We have a Meat Free Day in each menu cycle and work with the Red Kite Learning Trust executive chef and his team to create healthy and appealing menu choices   Please have a look at the menu sheet below so that you can discuss food choices with your child.  The menus may change slightly at short notice due to circumstances beyond our control, however this would only be on a rare occasion.

Children who bring a packed lunch to school sit in the hall with the children who are eating school meals.  We encourage all packed lunches to be healthy.

School Uniform
 
We believe that a school uniform is an important part of school life. It contributes to good order within the classroom, health and safety while out of school on visits, and it provides children with a sense of identity of belonging to the school community.
We ask that children wear a white shirt or blouse with a red sweatshirt or cardigan. These should be worn with a either grey or black trousers or a skirt. In summer, girls may wear a gingham red and white checked dress. The sweatshirts and cardigans can be bought from the school office at cost price either with or without the school logo. Please download the order form attached below.

For PE, we ask that pupils wear a white polo shirt and a pair of black shorts which can be bought at cost price from the school office. Outdoor PE will require suitable outdoor sports clothing and footwear, especially during the winter months. This may include black jogging bottoms or black leggings.
No jewellery of any sort can be worn during PE for Health and Safety reasons.

Parents' Evenings

Parents' evenings are important because they give you an opportunity to discuss what your child is doing at school and how they are getting on. You can also cover any issues you may want to talk about with your child's teacher.  So, going to parents' evening can help you to become better involved with your child's learning.  It helps you to give your child good, practical support and to make choices.  At Meadowfield, we believe that when schools and parents work together, children's outcomes are vastly improved and parent/carers, children and school staff are happier.
