Description of the school

The Mead Infant School is a popular and larger than average size infant school with an attached hearing impaired unit for 10 children. A major building project, completed last year, provides a new purpose built resource base for hearing impaired children and an Early Years wing to the school. Most children come from relatively favourable social and economic backgrounds and the proportion eligible for free school meals is below the national average. The percentage of children with statements is a little above the national average by virtue of the hearing impaired unit. The proportion of children for whom English is an additional language is near the national average but has been growing recently. The school has achieved the Investors in People Award in 2002 and 2005 and the Basic Skills Quality Mark for Literacy and Numeracy in 2006.
