Head Teacher's Welcome

Welcome to Merridale Primary School

On behalf of school staff, governors, children and families, I would like to offer you a warm welcome to our school website.

We are extremely proud of our school and the achievements of all our pupils and hope, when you explore our website, that you gain some insight into all of our children's achievements and successes, our hardworking staff and fantastic community.  

Our core aim as a school is to equip children with a wide range of knowledge and skills to enable them to maximise their potential and be successful in their future life and learning. 

Our curriculum is designed to be engaging, challenging and accessible for all children, building on their natural curiosity. 

We work in partnership with parents, carers and families as well as our local community to provide the best opportunities for our children. 

Be believe in a core set of values at Merridale - aspiration, kindness, resilience, creativity and curiosity.  We deliver and embed these values throughout our curriculum each day along with the overarching threads of developing children's communication skills, instilling a love of reading, finding ways to solve problems, being active in mind and body and learning how to be independent. We firmly believe in inclusivity for all and​ we provide a secure, safe and nurturing learning environment where everyone is valued as an individual and supported to be happy, enthusiastic and inquisitive learners. 

If you are interested in finding out more about our school or would like to visit, please contact us. Visits to the school are welcome - we would be proud to share our school with you.
