School Aims and Mission Statement




At Mere School the staff, children, parents and governors welcome all families to share the very high quality of education we provide.


We work as a team to create the physical, social and intellectual conditions necessary to promote an effective and improving school, where everyone feels they belong and are valued, secure and respected.


It is from this foundation that we encourage excellence, share success and enable all children to realise their full potential in preparation for a successful future life.


The school has a long history in the town and we actively seek to promote community involvement wherever possible.


Essentially, we believe children are our future and our purpose.
