Ruth Vonk, Headteacher

I am incredibly proud to be the Headteacher of Moorings Way Infant School. Our committed and experienced staff ensure that children are exposed to learning experiences in which they can flourish, becoming confident and curious lifelong learners, ready for whatever the future holds.

We believe our greatest asset is our children and we are proud of their many achievements and their personal growth. Our pupils develop into responsible, happy and confident young people. Over lockdown, we introduced bedtime stories on our Facebook page for everybody to enjoy – and many of our pupils took over the sessions themselves by reading their favourite book.

These first years of education, we believe, are vital to develop that love of learning. Our aim is to immerse the children in activities that are exciting, creative and relevant. We teach children the skills of early reading, writing and maths to a high standard through a range of engaging topics.

As a Thinking School, our curriculum promotes cognitive education and thinking skills by providing our children with a range of tools and techniques to support learning, not just now but for the future. Thinking Maps and Thinking Hats are used within language and social emotional development, and help with decision-making at different levels throughout the school.

Our children’s development doesn’t just take place in the classroom, however. We are passionate about the use of outdoor learning and run a series of extra-curricular activities like sports clubs, drama clubs, languages, karate and our choir. We also run a breakfast club and after-school club. I hope you enjoy exploring our school!

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.
