At Kings Meadow we are learning to be part of our community.
Here are some of the projects we are involved with and fund raising activities we support.
Harvest – collecting food
Choir - singing Christmas carols at the local Methodist church
Year 5 produced poppy art work inspired by the artist Carol Nelson for Remembrance commemorations. The work was displayed in Ainsdale Methodist Church Hall.
We are part of the SLP – ‘Southport Learning Partnership’. We are continuing with the project ‘Helping Hands’.
Here, we support the Senior Citizens of our community together with other local schools.
Our first meeting took place at Meols Cop High School to meet other School Council members and generate ideas for the year ahead.
Kings Meadow pupils joined the Senior Citizens at Ainsdale Community Centre for a delightful Christmas lunch. Afterwards they distributed cards from members of our school. New friends were made across the generations.

We look forward to sharing with the judges how much we enjoy being part of the local community and within the Southport Learning Partnership group supporting our Senior Citizens through the, 'Helping Hands' project.
Children in Need
Children in Need Friday November 14th 2014 was another well supported year by Kings Meadow Primary School. We raised a total of £210 pounds from donations and colouring competitions. The children came dressed as superheroes and were a colourful sight. The proceeds were divided between Children in Need and the Ebola crisis in Africa.
Thanks from the School Council go to everyone who donated money.
