Inquisitive questions from pupils at Horsted Junior School in Chatham


Would you be able to address the School Assembly please? was the question and of course I jumped at the opportunity to meet the pupils and staff at the Horsted Junior School

As I sat there watching years 3 to 6 filing in and the hall packing up to capacity I realised that all of their faces were staring at me and wondering, who is that man?

After being introduced by the Executive Head Teacher Steve Geary, I took the opportunity of congratulating the Head, Staff, Pupils and Governor’s for the excellent Ofsted report that they received in May, gave a little potted history of who I was and then asked if there were any questions.

What seemed like hundreds of hands immediately went up and there followed 45 minutes of probing and intelligent questions from the young pupils.

After the assembly I visited the classrooms in both the Infant and Junior Schools, chatting to both pupils and staff.

It was a wonderful experience and my thanks go the the Executive Head Teacher for inviting me, I look forward to returning in the future.
