About Us

Our school is a safe and friendly community that prides itself on making our children as confident, caring and as successful as we can. This website will give you a flavour of our school, introduce the people who work in it and celebrate the work and achievements of our children.

Meadow Farm School is located in the Chaddesden district of the city of Derby and has easy access to the A52 dual carriageway and the M1 motorway.  The school was built in 1968 to serve the community created by the building of a new housing estate of council houses and flats attached to existing private housing.   We cater for children between the ages of 3 and 11.

The school provides a curriculum which will enable every child to become confident, caring and accomplished.  The school also places a strong emphasis upon the development of an educational partnership with parents.

Please feel free to contact us should you require any further information or 

if you would like a copy of our school brochure.


Our catchment area is southern Chaddesden, which lies between Nottingham Road and the A52.  Parents/carers who live outside the catchment area, who would like their child/children to come to Meadow Farm, are welcome to talk to the Headteacher and should then apply in writing to the governing body. We have a planned admission limit of 45 children per year group.  


The teachers and teaching assistants work closely together to ensure that a broad and balanced curriculum is taught to each child enabling them to reach their potential.  All teachers are responsible for teaching the whole Primary curriculum.  All teachers and teaching assistants also have pastoral care for the children in school. 

Foundation Stage - Children in Foundation one (Nursery) and Foundation two (Reception) follow the Statutory Foundation Stage Curriculum.  This follows several strands of a child’s development.  An integral part of this  curriculum is the assessment of children during the time in the Foundation Stage. 

Key Stage 1 - (5 to 7 year olds) and Key Stage 2 - (7 to 11 year olds) follow the National Curriculum.  This is composed of the core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science, Information and Communication Technology and Religious Education; and the foundation subjects of History, Geography, Design and Technology, Music, Art, Physical Education and Personal, Social and Health Education.   

An integral part of teaching and learning is ongoing informal and formal assessment.  This is mostly informal.  However, at the end of Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, children take Statutory Assessment Tests (SATs). Further details of the Foundation and National Curriculum subjects, and any aspect of assessment are available from school on request. 


These take place at lunchtime and after school and are an excellent opportunity for children to widen their interests and develop their social skills.  We currently run a breakfast club (each morning), dance, computer club, cross-stitch, football, netball and jogging clubs.  Both boys and girls are encouraged to take part in all activities.

Our school teams play in friendly games and matches against other schools. 

We are part of the cluster of schools who benefit from Lees Brook Community Sports College and West Park Community School.  They provide children with opportunities to take part in activities both during and out of school hours.  We are fortunate that other outside agencies may occasionally offer additional activities for various year groups before and after school.
