This term we are focusing on the school value of changes we learn and grow together

Welcome to Herne Bay Infant School and Seashells Nursery 

At our school we aim to:

Provide a happy, secure, stimulating and attractive school environment for all our pupils, that supports their emotional wellbeing and academic development.
Through high quality teaching and learning, ensure each child develops academically to match their capability, to be resourceful and become an independent thinker.
Foster mutual respect between all staff, pupils and parents as the key to good pupil behaviour. We ensure firm yet fair discipline, provide good role models and offer plenty of praise to reinforce our aims.
Support parents/carers to enable them to maximise the opportunities for their children.
Develop a co-operative approach between teachers and governors and to use the talents of each individual fully to benefit the whole school.
Be an integral part of the local community with the staff, governors, parents and others working in partnership to maintain the friendly ethos of the school.
Provide a challenging, creative, well-organised curriculum which includes all children and develops their individual strengths and talents, enabling them to become life long learners.

All staff have completed safeguarding and e-learning training developed by the National Counter Terrorism Policing Headquarters (NCTPHQ), in conjunction with the College of Policing which includes guidance on how to identify people who may be vulnerable to being drawn into terrorism, and how to refer them into the Channel process. For more information, see our  Safeguarding Policy.
