Through the development of positive learning behaviours (6Rs) North Mead Primary hopes that all children leave school with the skills necessary for successful lifelong learning.

They also offer a breakfast club every morning and offer after school activities most evenings. Learning is celebrated and openly admired and the school strives to work and learn together with parents and carers.
