Lynda Daish, Headteacher

I’m extremely proud to be Headteacher of Meon Infant School. We’ve been rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted since 2005, and we pride ourselves on high standards and expectations.

We aim to instil a life-long love of learning, giving our pupils the confidence to flourish in an ever-changing world. Our school is a secure and nurturing environment where all teachers, parents, governors and visitors to our school are respected, valued and supported. As a Thinking School, both pupils and staff learn how to think reflectively, critically and creatively – and we believe this contributes to the positive wellbeing of everybody.

Our values are respect, resilience and enjoyment. We celebrate the fact that we are all different and may hold different beliefs, and we promote tolerance and respect. We encourage pupils to develop their skills to learn independently and to ‘have a go’ at new and unfamiliar challenges. And we make learning fun, inspiring children to be the best that they can be.

Enjoyment doesn’t just take place in the classroom, we run after-school clubs including football and cookery, and you can get involved with organising events such as children’s discos by joining ‘Friends of Meon School’. This brilliant group recently raised an incredible £15,000 to create a beautiful sensory garden for our children to enjoy. I hope you enjoy having a look around, and please let us know if you have any questions.

Top three things you need to know about Our Trust

Your preferences have prevented this content from being loaded. If you have recently changed your preferences, please try reloading the page

1. WHO THEY ARE: You may hear us referring to our Trust as TSAT, this stands for Thinking Schools Academy Trust. Affectionately nicknamed Our Trust, it’s effectively the family name for the 17 schools in Our Trust, The schools within Our Trust are situated across Medway, Deal and Hampshire.

2. WHY A THINKING SCHOOL IS THE ONE FOR YOUR CHILD: A Thinking School challenges students to think deeply about their thinking, to be their best self and to gain the knowledge, tools and skills to shape their success in a life beyond school. The children and young people we’re presently educating will retire around 2070. According to experts most of the jobs our children will have don’t even exist yet, and this is why developing skills to think independently and become life-long learners is so important.

3. HOW A THINKING SCHOOL WORKS: Our cognitive approach to education defines us but does not create a ‘one size fits all’. Each and every member of the TSAT family is equally as important and shares a direction and ethos; put simply, we believe that we are stronger together. Our schools work with each student so they are aspirational and ready to move forward and understand their role within their local community and beyond. The Thinking School approach to education is unique and we believe that it genuinely transforms the life chances of our children, teaching them the critical thinking skills they need to be resilient in life after school.

School Dinners

Chartwells are the caterers at all schools across The Thinking Schools Academy Trust. The Chartwells team are committed to finding imaginative new ways to make school dinners and snacks not only delicious and nutritious but also appealing. The food is prepared from fresh, sustainable, locally sourced ingredients.  All Chartwells menus are compliant with the School Food Standards as set out in the School Food Plan and approved by a qualified nutritionist.

 

School uniform

A school uniform is vital for a student to feel a part of something, it improves concentration and fosters a sense of pride, especially when they wear it outside of school. We are very proud of our uniform, it greatly enhances the standards of our school. We ask all children to dress in school colours of maroon badged jumpers and white shirts, teamed with grey trousers and black shoes.
