We have strong community ties with local churches, charities and other organisations. We also have strong links with support agencies such as Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS).
We participate in a variety of local events, including many of the Inter-School sports tournaments on offer across Portsmouth.
We have strong links with Chichester University and Winchester University, mentoring students and trainee teachers and supporting students to undertake research at the school.
We are part of a strong local network of schools to ensure all our children across the city access quality first teaching.
Meon Junior School is a 3 form entry junior school set in a large school building in Southsea and a member of The Thinking Schools Academy Trust. We currently have just under 360 pupils on roll. The school is set in a busy urban area a short distance from the seafront. The majority of our children transfer from either Meon Infant School or Moorings Way Infant School, but some do come from other local infant schools.
Meon Junior School has an active parents fundraising group named Friends of Meon School (FOMS) who work hard to support the work of the school.
Our Governing body plays an active role in shaping the future of the school and can regularly been seen on site.
FOM’s are parents and volunteers that put on special events within school which helps raise funds for extras for the school. Recently, this money has subsidised trips, paid for the year 6 Leaver’s Party and will subsidise this year’s Pantomime performance.
We are planning more events over the coming months and any help that you can offer will be greatly received.
We really appreciate everyone coming to our events, supporting our school and the children! If you would like to join our FOM’s team, please leave your details with the school reception and we will be in touch.
