Virtual Open Day

Welcome to Meon Junior School

We are really excited to invite you to explore our page designed and made just for you.

Whilst we always welcome visitors to our school, we understand sometimes it is not possible for a variety of reasons. For this reason, we have 2 videos and a number of documents for you to look at.  Both videos feature our amazing children telling you about our school.

At Meon Junior School we are working hard to ensure that:

  • Standards are high and most children make good or better progress from their starting points
  • The quality of the teaching is consistently good and much is outstanding
  • Behaviour is exemplary and the school is a safe, happy and inclusive place
  • Leadership at all levels is effective and leaders are highly ambitious for the school

As parents, you are vital partners in the work we do

We want to develop an awareness and sensitivity toward others, whatever their religion or culture, thus preparing the children for life in a multi-cultural society. As parents, you are vital partners in the work we do. It is important that we build a firm relationship between home and school.

During their years at Meon Junior School we are confident that the children will enjoy the stimulating and caring environment we create and that their true potential, both socially and academically, is reached. We look forward to working with you to make this possible and look forward to a successful partnership between you, your child and Meon Junior School in the years to come.

Ofsted 'Good' School

Meon Junior School, was praised by inspectors for its happy and productive atmosphere in its first review since the pandemic.

The report also highlighted the school’s strength in English, with leaders described as ‘ambitious’ and staff ‘all enjoying working.’

It quickly followed our accredition for the esteemed Thinking School status by the University of Exeter’s cognitive education development unit.

The Ofsted report, our first as part of the Thinking Schools Academy Trust, found that ‘pupils learn well across the curriculum’ and that ‘parents thoroughly recommend the school.’

"This is a happy, harmonious community; pupils are thoughtful and kind to each other"

Part of the Thinking Schools Academy Trust

1. WHO THEY ARE: Affectionately nicknamed Our Trust, it’s effectively the family name for the 18 schools in Our Trust. The schools within Our Trust are situated across Medway, Deal, Hampshire and Plymouth.

2. WHY A THINKING SCHOOL IS THE ONE FOR YOUR CHILD: A Thinking School challenges students to think deeply about their thinking, to be their best self and to gain the knowledge, tools and skills to shape their success in a life beyond school.

The children and young people we're presently educating will retire around 2070. According to experts most of the jobs our children will have don't even exist yet, and this is why developing skills to think independently and become life-long learners is so important.

3. HOW A THINKING SCHOOL WORKS: Our cognitive approach to education defines us but does not create a 'one size fits all'. Each and every member of the TSAT family is equally as important and shares a direction and ethos; put simply, we believe that we are stronger together.

Our schools work with each student so they are aspirational and ready to move forward and understand their role within their local community and beyond. The Thinking School approach to education is unique and we believe that it genuinely transforms the life chances of our children, teaching them the critical thinking skills they need to be resilient in life after school.
