East Meon Prospectus Oct 2023

Every day is filled with fun at East Meon!

Why East Meon?

We are extremely fortunate to live, work and learn in an area where you are spoiled for choice when looking for a good school and it can be very difficult to decide what is right for you and your child. East Meon Primary has a very close working relationship with all the schools in the locality who are all great but all different in their own way. So, why would you pick us?

We believe that we have several Unique Selling Points. These include:

* A Dynamic Curriculum

* The Fantastic Grounds

* Our Nurturing Environment

* Our strong Pupil Voice

* Our Christian Ethos

* Wrap-around Care

 A Dynamic Curriculum

Since coming to this school in September of 2018, as a staff team we have been working to redesign the curriculum to include more current topics and, more importantly the ideas and interests of our pupils. This work has led to some exciting changes and the introduction of topics such as 'The Great Barrier Reef-A natural wonder?', 'Is it Art?' and 'Gardeners World' amongst many others. We regularly review the curriculum and discuss the topics with the children prior to teaching to allow them the opportunity to lead the learning when appropriate.

 The Fantastic Grounds

Our curriculum is also greatly supported by our large grounds which contain a 'learning garden' a pond, our Tree House (where our library is based), a large open field with Trim Trail equipment, a reflection garden and a MUGA-Multi-Use Games Area. The MUGA enables us to hold larger sports tournaments with other local schools and to teach on the pitches even in bad weather.

The 'learning garden' is used regularly for science experiments and explorations and also holds our four chickens-Mo, Stephen, J.K and Rosa. It also allows us to grow vegetables and learn about the natural world. The eggs laid by our chickens are sold and the money is used for their up-keep. Any surplus is donated to the local food bank.

You will join us at an exciting time when we are beginning our journey to make even more use of our grounds through the inclusion of a Forest School curriculum planned for Summer 2024.

 Our Nurturing Environment

As a small school, we are privileged to have smaller class numbers than the larger primary schools. This means that every adult across the school knows every child and is able to support them effectively while being aware of any needs they may have. This has created a very nurturing environment in which our children feel, and are, very safe. 

 Strong Pupil Voice

At East Meon we have a very active School council which enables our pupil’s voices to be heard. They have been instrumental in deciding which charities top support each year and in suggesting activities to raise money. Through their efforts we have been able to raise funds and buy a ‘Friendship bench’ so no child id ever without someone to play with.

Our Christian Ethos
Our Christian Values of Hope, Love and Courage underpin both our behaviour management system and the way in which we teach our curriculum. We aim to make our children religiously and spiritually literate and encourage them to discuss what they believe. We do not expect every pupil to be a Christian and we very much celebrate the differences between each of us. 

Wrap-around Care

We offer wrap-around daily from 8am. Pupils coming for this morning session will be given a breakfast of cereal, toast and fruit and will have the chance to play board games.

We also offer after school care until 5pm. Here pupils will be offered a snack and will take part in a range of activities including board games, arts and crafts and movie afternoons.


Breakfast Club: £3 per day

After School Care: £5 per day


* Ofsted Rating

In October 2019, we were inspected under the new framework and were found to be a 'Good' school.

They found that the pupils 'like their friendly school' and that 'teachers and leaders have high expectations of what the pupils can achieve.'
