The school community comes together on a daily basis and includes worship and reflective time, culminating at the end of the week with the very popular, ‘Friday Prayers.’
For the twenty first century children need an excellent all round education. At Prince’s Mead we know that in order to succeed they need that little bit more.
Our educational approach is designed to shape our pupils’ ability to think in ways that will enhance their future and give greater meaning and enjoyment to their lives right now.
ISI Inspection Report - March 2016; 'The quality of pupils' achievement and learning, including the EYFS, is excellent across the full range of subjects and activities. Pupils' listening skills are a particular strength, and their positive attitude to everything they do is a significant factor in their many successes.'
Prince's Mead has a Christian Foundation and teaches children about the importance of Christianity in an ever changing world. We also recognise and value other world faiths and cultural differences within both the wider community and our school.
Prince’s Mead is a harmonious community in which the values of tolerance, loyalty and understanding have their place alongside the pursuit of academic success.
ISI Inspection Report - March 2016; 'The pupils have a strong moral awareness. They discuss pastoral matters and think about the consequences of their actions on others. Mutual respect is at the core of the school community.'
It is a school with great family appeal; week-ends are your own so you can spend time with your family at the end of a busy working week. Ours is a co-educational school specialising in the 4 – 11 age range. We believe that the whole atmosphere of the school is ideally suited to encourage the development of our children and we concentrate on preparing our pupils for the senior schools that are the most appropriate for them at the age of 11+. This is achieved through strong partnerships developed between children and teachers.
We recognise the vital input given by relatives and hold regular ‘Drop in Mornings’ and ‘Grandparents’ Tea Parties’. Our weekly ‘Friday Prayers’ is considered by many parents to be ‘a window on school life’. This is a very important day for us as we all gather together with our families on a weekly basis to celebrate individual achievement and to participate in the spiritual life of the school. In addition we have a very active Parents Association (PMA).
We have regular meetings both formal and informal with parents in order that they can feel fully involved in the education of their children. Parents can communicate with the school any way they wish; notes in the school diary, email, informal chats at the end of school day.
Matron is a vital link between parents, children and teaching staff and is available to give advice should it be required. All staff are involved with the social welfare, as well as the academic development of our pupils but Matron’s full time role is to ensure the physical well-being, happiness and pastoral care of all our children.
