What is University of Mead?
During Summer 2 the University of Mead will be open once a week, on Friday afternoon, between 1.30-2.50pm.
The children in years 2-6 will choose which degree they would like to work towards.
Children will be able to work with other pupils across their phases.
There will be a ‘graduation’ ceremony on the last Friday.
Why do we do this?
Pupil choice – We believe that it is a vital for children to have the autonomy to make choices about their learning and to take pleasure in learning something new.
Mead’s curriculum – We believe that our Mead pupils are entitled to a wide range of opportunities and a personalised curriculum.
Celebration – We believe that we should be celebrating the skills, gifts and talents of all pupils.
Challenge – We believe that we should offer enrichment that provides challenge for all learners (basic, advanced and deep understanding) .
Teachers choice – Teachers should be given opportunities to teach their passion how they would like to teach.
