Mr Meadows, who has been a headteacher for 20 years, paid tribute to the school and the surrounding community.
He said: "I've had a fantastic time here and this has undoubtedly been the best time of my career.
"The whole of Needham Market is a wonderful community and they're so proud of their school. Whenever we needed community support they've always been immensely helpful.
"I didn't ever think I would leave headship because I've loved it so much but this is a very exciting opportunity."
Mr Meadows will be replaced by Viv Rolph, who begins her role after Easter.
