A Message from the Governors - Vision

Some of you may know that a main role of the governing body at Herne Bay Junior School is to set and oversee its strategic vision. This vision is enshrined in the School’s strap-line, ‘One chance, let’s get it right’.
But how does the School make sure that it ‘gets it right’? For this to happen we believe that every child must:


Be happy.
Be given the best opportunity to excel mentally and physically.
Be willing to conform and contribute to community values.
Be responsive to the high expectations set by the School.


Most of the governing body’s work focuses on how well the School meets these criteria. Its many monitoring activities – which stretch from observing lessons and following pupil progress to inspecting the buildings, validating the finances, to even asking about the lunch menu – are all motivated by this core vision of ‘getting it right’.
So next time you see the School strap-line, please take a little time to reflect on what it means for your child and how best it can be supported at home.
