Herne Bay Junior School

We are delighted to welcome you to Herne Bay Junior’s newly designed web-site. It has been designed especially to celebrate the schools activities and achievements.

Herne Bay is a popular seaside resort on the North Kent coast in the South East of England. Originally established in the Victorian era, on fields at the outskirts of the town, it is now very much a central and integral part of the community.

We are a large school having almost 500 children on roll, with 4 classes in each of the 4 year groups.

We pride ourselves on the friendly, positive ethos and hope that you enjoy discovering this and a little more as you view our pages.

In the days before compulsory schools, full-time education was a privilege for only a minority of the population. The wealthy could afford school fees, whereas poorer families could not and depended on their children to earn a living to help supplement small incomes.

In 1783 the first free Sunday School was opened in Gloucester to provide education for the poor. This was followed by the establishment of Church Schools in 1798, where children were drilled to reply to set questions in chorus.

National Voluntary schools were set up by the Church Societies in Herne Bay in 1833. These were situated in the North and South Rooms, either side of Christ Church in William Street. In May 1870 Mr W J. Flower was appointed headmaster. He worked in very difficult and overcrowded conditions. 1870 was the year in which the Education Act ordered that a school place be provided for every child between the ages of 5 and 12. Areas without sufficient accommodation were to elect school boards which would finance the provision of such places from a local rate.

In 1884 plans were submitted for a new Board School in open fields at the back of the town and in June 1887 the local MP formally opened our present building. In 1891 Elementary Education was made free and in 1903 School Boards were abolished and elementary schools were given to the control of County Councils.

The secondary school was housed in the old Horsa huts on the school field prior to the building of Herne Bay High School at Greenhill. There has also since been the division of the Primary School into two separate schools, Herne Bay Infants and Herne Bay Juniors. Our Junior School has recently had the additional new block built alongside Kings Road, which contains eight classrooms and shared areas for Year Five and Year Four children. The design reflects the old Victorian architecture of the original building.

Plans are going ahead to replace the Horsa’s with a new classroom block, hall and dining room, hopefully ready in September 2005.

A School Hat (baseball type) may be purchased from Barnums.  This should only be worn in the summer as protection from the sun.

Jewellery – Children may not wear jewellery except ‘Medic-Alert’ bracelets and one stud in each ear.


Children are expected to change into suitable clothing for P.E. and Games.

Each child should have -

  • A white ‘T’ shirt and if possible a coloured ‘T’ shirt in ‘House’ colours.

  • A pair of shorts - navy or white (not lycra).

  • A pair of plimsolls or gym shoes.

  • A pair of socks.

  • A sweater for a cold day.

  • Two drawstring material bags; one to keep plimsolls in, the other for P.E. clothing.

  • The wearing of Sports Trainers is permissible for outdoor games only.

  • The wearing of ear studs during P.E. is only permitted if ears are taped with micropore which you should supply.

On ‘Games’ days, a track suit would be useful, particularly when the weather is cool.



We have a large number of clubs and societies which take place during the lunchtime or after school.  Our aim is to develop a child’s special interest or aptitude, particularly in leisure activities.  A child who opts to take part in any activity or to join any club does so on the understanding that he or she will attend regularly as there is always a waiting list of children wishing to join our clubs.   


Our aims are to:

           Provide an environment and ethos whereby pupils will enjoy school, find satisfaction and a sense of achievement.
           Enable children to realise their potential and develop their ability to reason.
            Promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, social and physical development of pupils.
            Encourage children to show care and respect for one another.
            Constantly improve the delivery of the curriculum and raise standards of attainment in pupils.
           Prepare children for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of adult life.

Further aims are in line with the Kent Curriculum Statement and National Curriculum.

           To maintain and develop in pupils, lively enquiring minds; to promote the ability to question and argue rationally; to encourage pupils to apply themselves to a range of tasks and skills.
           To emphasise the importance of language, number, the aesthetic and physical areas of learning and to develop competence in them.
           To foster attitudes which will instil self-confidence in pupils, create in them a sense of personal excellence and help them to acquire knowledge and skills relevant to life and work in a fast-changing world.
           To help pupils to develop perceptive, spiritual and moral values, and an understanding of the religions and beliefs of others.
           To help pupils to understand the world in which they live and the interdependence of individuals, groups and nations.
           To develop in pupils the ability to appreciate critically human achievements and aspirations.
           To undertake a programme of Personal, Social and Health Education.

The curriculum is the means whereby these aims are pursued. 


We cater for all pupils who have Special Educational Needs within mainstream provision.  Pupils with S.E.N. are identified through an audit and additional help is targeted in a number of ways. Teaching assistants provide help under the guidance of the teacher and levels of work are matched to a child’s ability. We have one full time member of staff, Mrs H Clark, who co-ordinates and teaches pupils with S.E.N., together with Miss J Lindsell who has a part-time teaching responsibility. Both members of staff will temporarily withdraw pupils for short periods who have specific problems and provide learning programmes, which will assist in improving pupils’ progress. If a pupil has a particular problem it may be appropriate to invite outside agencies to diagnose and advise. Parents will be informed and consulted at all times.
