On Wednesday 18th January, a team of eighteen Year 5 and 6 pupils took part in a Sportshall Athletics event at Herne Bay High School. The competition included a range of activities such as relays, speed bounce and javelin.
All children with attendance of 98% and above and who arrive to school regularly on time were entered into our lottery to win vouchers for the winner and 2 friends to have some fun at Playzone in Herne Bay. The draw was made in assembly at the end of last term and our lucky winner was Mia Hogbin in 4PP. Well done Mia! We were also very lucky to have had complimentary tickets from Theatrecraft for a family of 4 to go and see their Pantomime, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, at The Kings Hall. This very deserving prize went to Lilia Young of 5MB who has had 100% attendance since attending HBJS in year 3. Well done Lilia! We would like to say a BIG Thank you to Andrei Shchedrov, the Manager at Playzone, Herne Bay and Theatrecraft for kindly donating these wonderful prizes to us. Don’t forget, we have more amazing prizes to come. To be in with a chance of winning these prizes, your child needs to be in school regularly and on time.
The New Year has certainly got off to a flying start with the opening of our art exhibition based at the Horsebridge Centre in Whitstable. The exhibition is in collaboration with other schools in the Coastal Alliance and is based on the poem by Dr John Cooper Clarke ‘Nation’s Ode to the Coast’.

We hope everyone has had a relaxing Christmas break and are looking forward to a positive year ahead.
Here at Herne Bay Juniors we have started the New Year with a few changes.
In order to maintain our high standards of behaviour we have altered our behaviour policy.
Any behaviour policy is only effective if:
a. It works
b. It is fair
c. It rewards good behaviour
d. There are consequences to poor behaviour
e. It is used consistently
We felt that the previous policy did not address all of the above. As a whole staff we have given this a lot of discussion and thought. We are confident this new system will encourage the children to work together as well as being responsible for their individual behaviours. We value the importance of sharing positive behaviour with parents through weekly texts and these will continue. Our new behaviour policy can be found on our website.
We also felt it might be useful to explicitly outline some other more general expectations. Please click on the link below for further information.
