Our outstanding results year on year and the welcoming, nurturing atmosphere at Meoncross are not down to chance. Nor is it a coincidence that our pupils emerge from this setting confident, caring and outward looking. All this stems from the excellence of our teaching staff.

Staff are recruited with great care, and it is the culture of the school to help them to improve their teaching skills year on year. We perform regular observations both planned and unplanned and provide detailed feedback with support to help them make improvements. Staff are encouraged to make their lessons creative and engaging as this is the route to inspire and inform our pupils.

All the staff share a common sense of purpose and morale is boosted by the everyday friendliness of our staff room, and staff have regular opportunities to participate in social events.

We operate an open door policy at the school and should you wish to contact a member of staff you may do so by emailing them. The email protocol is firstname.surname@meoncross.co.uk.  Alternatively if you would prefer to speak to someone over the phone or would like to arrange a face to face meeting, please call the office on 01329 662182 and we will do our best to put you in contact.
