At the Meadows, we believe that all children have the right to be who they are without discrimination regardless of race, religion, culture, sexual orientation, economic background, gender or disability. We welcome children and families from all backgrounds and encourage our school community to embrace and celebrate our differences, ensuring everyone is treated equally with respect and dignity.
Meet the Team
I am Mr Kings and my specific work around promoting equality and celebrating diversity at the Meadows involves organising a whole school approach to teaching children how to respect and understand each other. This starts from Reception and continues until they leave the school. I am proud to have introduced the Everyone Welcome, Everyone Equal programme to school. This scheme of work allows children to learn about equality through storybooks that celebrate difference and prepares them for modern life in Britain.
I am Mrs Jeffers and I am the mental health lead for children at The Meadows. I work alongside Mr Kings. As Senior Mentors for the school, it is our job to ensure that all children feel safe and happy. We use a range of skills and experience to help children, who may be going through a difficult time and we are there to offer support when it’s needed. We also co-ordinate lunchtime and work hard to ensure that we provide a safe and happy play experience for the children. As a Safeguarding Lead, my role is to ensure that children are safe and well in both their school and home environment. We deal with specific concerns, that may affect a child's well-being and work to support families to ensure the best possible solutions.
I am Mrs Marley. I support children and their families in our school and run small nurture groups throughout the day. I am a mental health ‘first aider’ as well as a ‘Peacemakers Champion’.
Hello, my name is Mrs Heskey and I am the Family Support Worker in school. My role is to provide support, advice and information to families within our school community. I can help you with any worries that you may have in relation to your child's education, behaviour, special educational needs and well-being. I can provide information and signpost you to other helpful services within our local area such as advice on housing, foodbanks or domestic abuse support services. I am also here as someone to talk to if you need me. I can meet with you at home or in school at a time to suit yourself. All advice and support given is confidential and I may not have all the answers, but hopefully I can help you to work out how to find them! As a Safeguarding Lead also, I work with you, your family and, professionals when needed, to keep your children safe and well.
