World Book Day 2 March 2017
And the winner of the best costume is .....
This week we had to say goodbye to a very dear member of the Meadlands Family, Mr Dickinson. Jeff has worked at Meadlands for 38 years and during this time has seen many changes in the school: he’s worked alongside 5 different headteachers, over a 100 members of staff and 1000s of children and their families. We will all miss Mr Dickinson so much but wish him great happiness and love in his retirement.
We are re-launching our egg raffle, you can now get more for your money!
Over the holidays Meadlands were thrilled to host filming for a television commerical linked to the Paralympics. The following video gives a bit of background behind an important campaign to celebrate diversity.

Tree House Grand Opening
On Friday 16 October Meadlands were thrilled to welcome MP Zac Goldsmith to the opening of our new treehouse lookout. The fantastic treehouse is part of Meadlands’ ongoing forest schools programme. Mr Goldsmith, who kindly donated 4 hornbeam trees to the project, declared that “outdoor learning is the most fun, and Meadlands do it better than any school in the country!”
In keeping with our ethos as a community school, Meadlands hired Ham resident Howard Young of Young’s Carpentry to design and build the treehouse. The grounds were developed by ex-Kew Gardens employee Roger Howard with help from Meadlands children.
