After reading so many bad reviews, I thought it would be a good idea to add a review of someone whose child is attending the school currently. I think people are quick to write a negative review when you have had an issue, which is completely their right to do so, however, I wish more people would write good reviews if they have a good experience.
My child is currently attending Meoncross, and he loves it. He is currently in year six and has been at the school for three years. He himself has rated the school an 8.5 to a friend who doesn’t attend to this school, which says quite a lot. I feel his education has excelled since he has been at the school, yes, they were teething issues initially, but they soon came to an end and he has slotted in like he was always there from the beginning.
I guess there are issues in any, and every school that a child attends, and that’s not to say the other reviews haven’t had their problems, but I wanted to express my love for the school and the fact that my child loves the school. Don’t make an assumption based on what you have read on any previous negative reviews, go and see the school yourself and make up your own mind.
I would not recommend this school to anyone. From my personal experience, the school has proven to be ineffective at dealing with bullying. Despite numerous reports and complaints, the school has not taken appropriate action to prevent or stop the bullying. This has resulted in a very negative and unsafe environment for students, which has affected their ability to learn and feel comfortable in the classroom.
Additionally, the quality of teaching at this school is inadequate for "some" of the lessons. Teachers are often unprepared, and their lessons lack structure and engagement. This has left many students feeling frustrated and unchallenged, which has hindered their academic progress. It's clear that the school is not investing in its teachers or providing them with the necessary resources to help students succeed.
Finally, the school's lunch options are very poor. The food is often unappetizing and unappealing, with limited options for students with dietary restrictions. This has left many students hungry and unable to focus in the afternoon, which is essential for academic success.
Overall, the school's inability to deal with bullying, inadequate teaching, and poor lunch options make it a very challenging environment for students to thrive in. I would highly recommend looking into other schools in the area that prioritize student safety, academic excellence, and healthy meal options.
Would not even bother arranging to look at this school. There is disruptive behaviour and bulling in most year groups which senior members of staff remain in denial of and just let it continue regardless, so it affects the good kids! I am a former pupil and rate this school as 'pretty on the outside, but ugly on the inside'.
The school cannot handle any form of bullying and will provide more opportunities and support for the bullies than the victim. They have also faked tests for extra time so the time deserved was not given, and were not capable of spotting children who have ADHD. Extremely disappointing, with members of staff who are not properly equipped to carry out their job roles. A complete staff reshuffle and the policies would need to be re-written before anyone should even consider sending their children here.
