Dinosnores.15 children and 4 members of staff from Herne Bay Junior School have survived sleeping with the dinosaurs!

On Saturday 23rd April 2016, 15 intrepid adventurers and 4 oblivious teachers ( Mrs Nation, Mrs Kingman, Mrs Evett-Collins and Mrs Edwards)set off in Herne Bay Junior School’s minibus for an amazing adventure to the Natural History Museum in London.
The journey took us through the exciting and colourful centre of London to the London Science Museum for an afternoon of discovery and an early packed tea.
At 5:45 we headed into the Natural History Museum, laden down with pillows, sleeping bags, snacks and visions of the excitement ahead.
We were directed through the main hall, under Diplodocus to our sleeping area in the fossils of mammals hall.
After setting up, the evening was spent participating in an Exploring Space event, designing and making Dino T-shirts and a torch lit Dino trail.
By midnight we were all exhausted!!!
As the lights went down, the silence fell upon us. The dinosaurs were atmospherically lit and watched over us all as we slept.

Ofsted - Listening to Parents in the South East Region

Ofsted is committed to improving engagement with parents on how we work and what we find. As part of this work Stephen Long and Hilary Macdonald, senior inspectors in Ofsted’s south east region, would like to invite parents of school age children in the south east region to attend this webinar.

About the webinar -

Date - Wednesday May 4, 2016 7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

During the webinar inspectors will be outlining:

- Ofsted’s current approach to inspection
- priorities for schools in the region
- how inspections try to get to the heart of what is going on in schools

The webinar is also an opportunity for parents to share their views. We would very much like to know:

 - What do parents think is going well in schools and what could be better
 - What do parents think Ofsted do well, and what could it do better

Parents’ details will not be visible to other attendees and you won’t be required to speak during this event. There will be an opportunity to send in written questions and comments before the webinar and give you views through the online polling.

Please note, this session is not for raising concerns about individual schools, but for raising more general issues.
