Principal's Welcome

Thank you for visiting the Meadowfield School website.

Meadowfield School is located in Sittingbourne and currently has 240 pupils with profound, severe and complex needs including autism.  We are comprised of the following:

  • Early Years Department which includes our Observation and Assessment Nursery, Honey Bees

  • Primary Department

  • Secondary Department

  • 6th Form

In addition we offer support, training and advice to schools, nurseries and settings throughout Swale through our Specialist Teaching and Learning Service (STLS) and through our Meadowfield Inclusion Development and Support Centre (MIDAS). 

Meadowfield is a modern, purpose built school designed to enable easy access to all of our facilities.

We are an ambitious school that celebrates the success of each individual.  We are very proud of recent accomplishments including:

  • Ofsted judged us to be OUTSTANDING in all areas, November 2014

  • Leading Parent Partnership Award, June 2014

  • Investor in Diversity, November 2014

  • Swale District winner for best use of drama to promote writing, speaking and listening (Kent Literacy Awards, 2015)

  • Kent Literacy Champion of the Year, 2015

What we are most proud of, however, are our pupils who make outstanding progress over time from their starting points and who are well prepared for their next stage.   The staff of Meadowfield are highly skilled, dedicated, enthusiastic and have high expectations of what pupils can achieve.

Should you wish to learn more about Meadowfield School, please keep in mind that visitors are welcome.

We look forward to seeing you.

Sincerely –

Jill M. Palmer, Principal
