A busy Wednesday visiting Medway Schools in Chatham

I had a great day visiting Medway Schools in Chatham yesterday.

First stop was the Phoenix Junior Academy in Glencoe Road Chatham. A particularly interesting visit as Glencoe Road School, as it was then, was my first school as a youngster.

After discussing matters with the Head Teacher Alyson Smith I was taken on a tour of the school, sitting in on lessons and talking with pupils and Teachers.

Here is Alyson’s message to pupils (taken from their website)

Welcome to Phoenix Junior Academy

The Phoenix Junior Academy is committed to providing an exciting education for all pupils.  We aim for children to achieve the best and be the best they can.

The school team at Phoenix will work hard to ensure that your child enjoys their time at our school and leaves Phoenix Juniors ready to start a new chapter in their lives. While attending our school your child will be encouraged to be independent, to persevere, be honest and caring, whilst feeling safe and valued. If your child works hard they will be able to achieve their very best, becoming positive and successful learners who are ready to face the world equipped with skills they can use for the rest of their life.

I place a strong emphasis on building relationships with our children, parents and their families. At Phoenix there is a dedicated team whose job it is to support children and their families so that all children can attend school and receive an education.  We operate an open door policy at Phoenix and if there is anything we can do to support your child, or you have any concerns, please come into school for a chat with myself or one of my team.

Primary school days should be the most magical, fun filled days of a young person’s life. A time to make friends, to sing, dance, laugh, run, jump, play as well as learn. I hope every child that attends our school will leave with these positive happy memories
