The Meridian Primary School is a happy and vibrant school situated in the picturesque village of Comberton, some five miles west of Cambridge.
Our aim is that children will leave school with these values deeply embedded:
Lifelong love of learning
Respect and courtesy
Care and consideration for others
Confidence and high self-esteem
Independence and responsibility
High expectations of themselves
Our term dates are set by Cambridgeshire County Council. In addition we are required to announce three additional training days when the school will be closed (see calendar).
The 2014-15 prospectus for Meridian School is now available to download.
Meridian School is an active member of Network CB23 - a group of local schools working together to share ideas and improve our performance.
This stands for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. Meridian School is supported by Cambridgeshire Local Authority to ensure children with special needs receive appropriate provision - see this link.
Yes, we pride ourselves on looking smart and being part of a team, and therefore all Meridian pupils are expected to wear the school uniform. We have kept the uniform as simple as possible so it is easy for parents to buy and to keep clean. Here is a link to the school uniform policy. Here is a link to the online store.
The short answer is "no" - you are legally required to send your child to school. The longer answer is "only in exceptional circumstances", which must be agreed in advance with the school. Exceptional circumstances do not include holidays that are cheaper or fit in with parents' work commitments.
