Pupils at Mead Road Infant School are happy and secure. They love their school and are proud of it. Pupil voice repeatedly tells us that pupils enjoy learning and that lessons are enjoyable and challenging, they also talk warmly about their teachers and know that they play a valuable role in supporting them and keeping them safe. Pupils at Mead Road have friends who they treat well and with respect - they feel that behaviour is good in school and that they are safe. Pupils at Mead Road love our clubs, activities, trips and outside learning, and repeatedly tell us that playing on our tree house Woody is one of their favourite things in the world!
Building Global Awareness & Responsibility: Developing Children as Future Citizens
At Mead Road Infant School, we believe that even the youngest of children can rise to the challenge when given roles of responsibility, and that doing so helps them appreciate the powerful role that they can play in being active citizens, affecting change and helping others. By providing leadership roles for children, they learn first-hand to care about their school and community, and the people within it, whilst preparing them for life as future citizens. As a result, we provide all our Oak children with a leadership role of responsibility and offer some roles to Willow.
The leadership roles on offer this year are:
- School Council
- Eco Council
- Play Leader
With the support of the adults in school, children carry out their leadership role throughout the year which directly develops their knowledge, confidence, self-esteem, communication skills, social skills and empathy, whilst also learning more about rights and responsibilities and our British Values.
At Mead Road we uphold and teach pupils about British Values. Democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths are taught explicitly through our PSHE curriculum, SMSC, Citizenship and RE, as well as through our wider, broad and balanced curriculum. These values are also embedded within our nine core school values:
Honesty Kindness Effort
Acceptance Integrity Respect
Fun Creativity Responsibility
In addition to our curriculum, we promote British values through:
- regular assemblies with a focus on respecting children’s rights
- creating links with community projects
- our active, elected school council
- visits to local places of worship
- staff training and raising awareness of the PREVENT strategies.
