Meon Junior School is a very friendly school where we have a highly motivated and talented team and children are encouraged to become confident, caring and articulate and to use their abilities to the full. We provide an atmosphere which enables the children to acquire a wide range of knowledge, skills and practical abilities.
Whatever your child’s ability, you can be sure we aim to meet the needs of all children as we strive for excellence in all we do. We offer an exciting curriculum in which the children play an important role in helping us to mould standards.
We aim to become a Centre of Excellence by providing an engaging, inspiring and relevant curriculum in which all children make excellent progress, where they can develop confidence and pride in their own abilities.
High standards in English, Mathematics, Science and Computing are vital in our school along with a strong emphasis on History, Geography, RE, Physical Education and the arts. Therefore, the teachers at Meon have implemented strong, well-planned cross-curricular themes.
Children will be able to apply the knowledge and skills learned in one subject in a range of contexts which will reinforce their learning and increase their understanding, independence, confidence and love of learning.
At Meon Junior School we are working hard to ensure that…
…and therefore the school is judged as being good overall.
At Meon Junior School each pupil is assigned a house. Each week pupils earn habit points for showing our 8 habits of mind in the classroom. Each week we have a winning house with the most habit points. The benefits of this is that it develops a healthy competitive spirit among the pupils and a sense of unity. It also encourages every pupil to feel an integral part of the school and feel equally responsible to contribute.
Each house has elected two house captains from year 6. The characteristics that we require of our house captains are ; leadership skills; a strong School 'Spirit'; good organisational skills; a supportive, caring and fair attitude; respectful conduct towards House members and the whole-School community; to be responsible, and a good role model
