Meadowdale Primary-162

Vision, values and ethos

At Meadowdale Academy we have a simple shared vision with all schools in the North East Learning Trust - that every child experiences excellence every day.

We are committed to working together as a community to ensure every learning journey is memorable, happy and each individual’s potential is recognised and nurtured.

As a school we aim to develop:

  • Enthusiastic and successful learners
  • A curriculum that will inpire and challenge all learners
  • A nurturing and caring community that puts everyone’s wellbeing and positive mental health at the heart of what we do
  • Responsible, active citizens of current and future communities
  • A learning environment that is safe, stimulating and fully supports and extends learning

We believe effective teaching and learning is:

  • Life skills for a lifelong learning journey
  • Emotionally supportive, in a climate in which mental health and wellbeing can be discussed, shared and supported
  • Active and interactive
  • Relevant and meaningful
  • Nurtures everyone’s individual potential
  • Inspiring and ambitious
  • Neighbourhood and community-centred
  • Generates challenge, equality & opportunity

At Meadowdale Academy we believe in the concept of lifelong learning and the notion that learning should be a rewarding and enjoyable experience for everyone. We understand that positive wellbeing and good mental health underpin the ability to recognise potential.

Learning should be fun for everyone. Through our teaching we aim to equip children with the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to be able to make informed choices about the important things in their current lives and be active citizens now and in the future, and have the emotional capacity to do so. We believe that appropriate teaching and learning experiences help children to lead happy and rewarding lives and are an investment for future communities.
