School Description

The school is much larger than average for a primary school and has grown by another class since the previous inspection. It is gradually expanding towards four forms of entry, but currently has three classes in Reception and Years 1 and 2, and two classes in Years 3 to 5. In Year 6, pupils are taught in three smaller classes. Major building works had begun two days before this inspection. These have limited access to certain parts of the very large school site There are two sessions for nursery age children, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Most of these children move on to Reception and the school draws the rest of its intake from a wide variety of independent nursery providers. The large majority of pupils are of White British heritage, with a small minority from a range of other ethnic backgrounds. The largest of these groups are pupils from Eastern European countries. There is a growing number of pupils who do not speak English when they join the school. The movement of pupils in and out of the school is much higher than is usually found. The proportion of disabled pupils and those with special educational needs supported at school action is above average. The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is well above average. Garlinge is a lead school for pupils with physical impairment. There are currently seven such pupils on roll, all of whom have statements of special educational need and who are fully integrated into mainstream classes. The school works in close partnership with The Foreland special school and hosts one of its classes on site. This provision was not inspected. Pupils from The Foreland are integrated into mainstream classes at Garlinge for some lessons. The proportion of pupils who are eligible for additional funding known as pupil premium (pupils who are eligible for free school meals and children in care) is well above the national average. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress. The school works in partnership with a number of primary and secondary schools in Thanet as part of the Great Expectations Learning Alliance. A breakfast club operates daily.

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.
