School Closes for the Summer Holidays

Friday 19th July

INSET stands for In-Service Training Day. These are 5 identified days across the year that are used for staff development.

Children do not attend school on INSET Days.

Attendance

Please ring the absence line on 01709 740500 to report if your child is going to be off school.

 

We operate a first day response to absence. It is parents and carers responsibility to inform school of the reason for absence each morning that their child is absent. If we do not hear from you, our attendance officer Mrs Riley will phone you, email you and text you asking you to make contact and provide a reason for absence. If there is no response, we will conduct a house visit, with another member of staff, to find out where your child is. We care about our children and need to ensure they are safe.

Uniform

We take a great deal of pride in our school and the community we serve. We want to encourage every child to be the best they can be. As part of this approach we have a uniform policy. All children must wear any of the following:

  • Plain black or grey trousers, skirts, culottes, shorts

  • White or light blue polo shirt or shirt

  • Navy blue cardigan or jumper

  • Black trainers or shoes

  • Blue gingham summer school dress

  • Navy or grey tights

 

It is personal choice as to whether you would like the school badge on the children’s uniform or not. If you would like to buy uniform with our badge on, it is available from Pinders which is situated at 16 College St, Rotherham S60 1QB or orders can be placed online at https://pindersschoolwear.com/schools/115/MeadowviewPrimary

Alternatively, you can purchase uniform from large supermarkets chains or store of your choice.

As a school we will provide your child with a free book bag to promote the importance of reading. Children will need to bring this to school daily with their reading books.  If the book bags become lost or needs replacing it can be ordered from Pinders.

Please see the photographs below for examples of what good uniform looks like.

PE Kits

All children will do 2 hours of PE each week, there is usually one indoor session and one outdoor session. On PE days, we encourage children to come into school in their PE kits rather than their school uniform. Children stay in their PE Kits all day.

After starting at our school, your child will be given a house team that they will join. The houses we have are:

  • Red Rubies

  • Green Emeralds

  • Yellow Diamonds

  • Blue Sapphires

Children can wear a round neck t-shirt in the colour of their house team just like the ones below or a plain white round neck t-shirt if preferred. No logos please.

School Lunches

Our school dinners here at Meadow View are excellent, with all of the meals freshly made onsite every day for our children to enjoy.

The latest four choice menu  is available to download on the right hand side of this section.
 

All menus are designed to meet the national nutritional standards so that the children of Rotherham benefit in receiving all the required elements for their growth and development.​

Prices are £2.50 per day and £12.50 for the full week.

School Meals Menu- Riverside Catering

As we are now a cashless school, payments for school dinners must be made via the SchoolMoney Online Payment System, or at a Paypoint location (click here for more information about the School Money Payment System).

Our school dinners are proving very popular and we would like to thank our dinner time team who continue to provide the children with healthy and nutritious meals. If your child currently has a packed lunch, they may wish to try a school dinner - they are highly recommended.

Free School Dinners
Paper proof of benefits is no longer required to process a claim for Free School Meals. Proof will only be needed if entitlement cannot be confirmed through our systems.
