School Description

This is a much smaller than average primary school with a greater than average number of boys in the school. The vast majority of pupils are of White British heritage. The proportion of pupils eligible for the pupil premium (additional funding for those pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and for children looked after) is just below the national average. The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs and/or disabilities is well above that found nationally, especially for those pupils who have a statement of special educational needs or an education, health and care plan. The school meets the current government’s floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for attainment and progress. The school meets the government’s guidelines for publishing information and policies on the school’s website. Inspection report: Eastling Primary School, 13–14 September 2016 Page 9 of 11 Information about this inspection The inspector observed seven lessons across all year groups. Some lessons were jointly observed with senior leaders. The inspector held meetings with leaders, other staff and with governors. The inspector also spoke to a representative of the local authority. The inspector evaluated key documents including the school’s strategic planning, minutes of meetings, reports of attendance and academic progress. The inspector scrutinised books in lessons and a sample of key stage 2 pupils’ writing and mathematics books. The inspector observed pupils’ behaviour at break and around the school and during other activities. The inspector listened to pupils read and spoke with pupils informally and formally. The inspector took into account the 24 responses from parents on Parent View (Ofsted’s online questionnaire for parents) and spoke to parents informally at the end of the day.

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the annual School Census.

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our school catchment area guide for more information on heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the annual School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.

“The community and family involvement by the school and its staff is excellent and was an enormous deciding factor in choosing Eastling . The pastoral care is first rate. “

“The professional and friendly nature of the staff towards the children is brilliant. This in turn reflects through the happiness and well being of how the children act in themselves and towards others 8-)”

“Lovely family feel with well mannered children”

“A happy and safe environment in which to learn with good teachers

“The school recognises each child's strengths and weaknesses and helps more if needed in certain subjects.”

"The fact that the HT knows every child individually, and that it's a small school and the children get on with each other most of the time."

The catchment map is incorrect. Pupils as far as Teynham or Whitstable regularly get places at the school.
