Free School Meals During School Closure:


Important Message

Dear Parents/Carers

In line with Government advice Meadow Park School is closed. The Secretary of State has clarified that ‘if a child can stay at home, then they should be at home’. Sending your child in otherwise, places them and my staff and their families at increased risk.

All our children in care are in a safe and caring environment which has been assessed as such. If this was not the case, they would not have been placed there. 

We are asking that all children remain at home unless both parents are key workers and there are not other viable alternatives. If there are no other viable options then the school will need five working days notice to ensure there are staff ratio availability and all health and safety measures have been accounted for. Please email the school to secure a place meadowpark@knowsley.gov.uk

My staff will be in regular contact with all families during our closure and will be working with vulnerable groups as part of a wider network of support.

Thank you for your many messages of support during these uncertain times. 

Welcome to the website of Meadow Park School

We are a pupil referral unit situated in the borough of Knowsley on Merseyside.

We provide a quality educational experience for students who have or are experiencing difficulties in a mainstream setting due to medical, social, emotional or behavioural needs. We support young people to develop alternative strategies to improve their resilience and confidence through a personalised curriculum, delivered by dedicated, experienced and qualified staff.

During the time that students stay with us, we help them to:
* Become more reflective, understanding the consequences of their behaviour for themselves and others.
* Become more engaged with learning, enjoying school and making progress.
* Be more resilient and able to cope with the challenges they face in school.
* Improve their attendance.
* Improve their attitude towards education, understanding how success at school is the first step towards a productive and happy future.
