About Meadowside Academy

Our vision is for all children to feel happy, confident and supported. They will enjoy a creative and captivating curriculum that inspires them to reach their full potential.

We believe that when children feel safe, happy and supported, they can achieve amazing things. Our school thrives on a culture of high expectations where every member of our dedicated team is committed to making a real difference to the children in our care. As part of Elevate Multi Academy Trust, we ensure that children 'Keep Up, not Catch Up'. This means that they have every opportunity to meet and exceed age related expectations; our teaching approach ensures that every child has the support and challenge to achieve their potential.

Our approach to the curriculum is fun, exciting and engaging. We learn through whole school 'Big Ideas', which start with a launch and end with a landing. Parents are regularly invited to share children's learning during our curriculum landings and at other opportunities throughout the year. Our learning is based around the National Curriculum, but our approach is for the children to be involved in shaping their learning, asking questions and challenging themselves. We have exceptionally high expectations for children's learning across the curriculum, and we are committed to developing a passion for learning as well as creativity and a sense of responsibility for our world. Outdoor learning is very important to us at Meadowside and all children regularly take part in Forest Schools sessions.

We are the lead school of North Star Teaching School Alliance, a collaboration of primary schools in North Yorkshire. Our collective aim is to improve outcomes for all children through a self-sustaining, dynamic system of school improvement and support across the region and beyond.
