Code of Conduct for Parents, Carers and Visitors

At Meadow View Primary School we strive to build a strong relationship with parents in order to help create a stimulating learning environment which continues from school to home, providing all pupils with the opportunity to achieve to the best of their ability.

In order to create a welcoming and safe learning environment, the school implements a specifically designed set of rules regarding behaviour and conduct which parents and visitors are expected to act in accordance with.

Our Code of Conduct for Parents, Carers and Visitors outlines the manner in which parents are expected to act whilst on school premises, as well as detailing the type of behaviour which will not be tolerated. This is so we can continue to flourish, progress and achieve in an atmosphere of mutual understanding.

Parent Survey 2019

Thank you to all the parents who returned the survey in March 2019. The information has been very useful to support the school in making informed decisions. We thought that now we have been working hard on the information, you would like to know what we've been doing in school in response to your feedback.

Complaints

There will be occasions when parents or carers are dissatisfied with what is happening in school. Similarly, neighbours of the school or other members of the local community may be dissatisfied by some aspect of school life.

Section 29 of the Education Act 2002, places a duty on Governing Bodies of all maintained schools and maintained nursery schools in England, to have in place a procedure to deal with complaints relating to the school and to any community facilities or services that the school provides. The law also requires the procedure to be publicised.

Our Complaints Policy and Procedure is available to download.

We give careful consideration to all complaints and deal with them as swiftly as possible. We aim to resolve any complaint initially informally through dialogue and mutual understanding. We provide sufficient opportunity for any complaint to be fully discussed, and then resolved at an informal level.

School Dinners

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

The latest Three Choice Menu (from April 2020) is available to download.

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

Prices are £2.05 per day and £10.25 for the full week.

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 (see below for more information about the SchoolMoney 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. There is a new application form that can be completed online which can be found by visiting the following link: Apply for free school meals
