School Description

The school does not meet requirements on the publication, on its website, of information about the progress and attainment of pupils; the current designated safeguarding leader; how the school ensures that disabled pupils have access to all areas of the premises and the curriculum; and the contact details of the chair of the governing body. The school does not comply with Department for Education guidance on what academies should publish on their websites about specific arrangements for excluding pupils. Northdown Primary is a larger-than-average school. It is currently part of the TKAT multi-academy trust. It is one of five schools organised as a cluster on the Isle of Thanet. The chair of the governing body is also the chair of the joint governance board, which Inspection report: Northdown Primary School, 9–10 November 2017 Page 10 of 13 oversees all five TKAT, Thanet schools. There are slightly more girls than boys at the school. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils is double the national average. The number of pupils who are from Black and minority ethnic households is above the national average. The proportion of pupils who speak English as an additional language is above the national average. Publicly held information about the proportion of pupils who receive support for their SEN and/or disabilities is not accurate. Leaders are currently working to identify precisely how many pupils have SEN and/or disabilities. This includes those who have an education, health and care plan or a statement of SEN and/or disabilities. This group is currently smaller, for the size of the school, than is found nationally. The number of pupils who either leave or join the school at times other than the end of a key stage is above the national average. The school is located in a region of above-average deprivation. The school meets the government’s current floor standards.

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.
