Children stay late for an evening of forest activities

On 14th March, 16 children from across the year groups returned to school for an evening of forest activities. Although we started in daylight with a glorious setting sun, we were soon in darkness requiring the use of our headtorches. To begin with, the children enjoyed time to explore our forest area before gathering near the fire for some campsite cooking. We started with Dough Twists on sticks, followed by freshly cooked fish and sweet potato, all polished off with toasted marshmallows in Smores! All the children enjoyed trying something new and everyone had a fantastic night. Mr Hobbs and Mr Thomas thoroughly enjoyed the evening too and are excited to run the next event.


Specialist Resourced Provision (SRP)


The consultation on the proposal to establish a joint 20 place Specialist Resourced Provision (SRP), for pupils with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), at Herne Bay Infant School & Nursery and Herne Bay Junior School has been paused until the current review of SRPs across the County, being undertaken by Kent County Council, has been completed. The review will be looking at the current model, alternative models and reviewing their contribution and impact on the countywide development of inclusion in mainstream schools.

It is expected that the review will report by the end of March 2022 and will inform future provision.

The drop-in session planned for the 27th January has therefore been cancelled. Any updates will be posted on this website.

Thank you for your interest.
