Anna Webb , Headteacher

Hello and welcome! Here at Newbridge Junior School, we pride ourselves on providing a safe, stimulating, challenging and caring environment where children can develop intellectually, physically, emotionally and socially to be prepared for their future.

Each child is valued and their unique set of skills and talents are developed so that they can ‘Be Their Best’. We want every child to leave our school ready for the next stage in their education and with a real appetite for learning – aided by a whole-school approach to the teaching and learning of Thinking Skills.

We have six core values: work well with others, be independent, be healthy and safe, show respect, aspire to be better, and be resilient. Parents are encouraged to involve themselves in their child’s learning and to have high expectations of the school. I am incredibly proud to be Headteacher, and of the children and staff who contribute so much to the every day.

I hope you enjoy virtually exploring our school and please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Top three things you need to know about Our Trust

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 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 plain navy blue or white for jumpers and shirts, teamed with black for trousers.
