School Description

Salmestone Primary School is larger than the average-sized primary school. There are two classes in each year group from Reception Year to Year 6. The early years provision comprises one Nursery and two Reception classes. Children attend Nursery part time and Reception full time. The proportion of pupils known to be eligible for support through the pupil premium, which provides additional funding for children looked after by the local authority and pupils known to be eligible for free school meals, is well above the national average. The proportion of pupils with SEND is broadly in line with the national average. The current headteacher has been in post since January 2017. The school is part of The Kemnal Academies Trust’s Thanet division. A regional executive director has oversight of the five primary schools in this division of this large Inspection report: Salmestone Primary School, 22–23 January 2019 Page 10 of 13 MAT. The MAT works closely with school leaders, providing effective challenge. Regular evaluations of leaders and the quality of teaching and learning are undertaken to check that the school is improving rapidly. e Inspection report: Salmestone Primary School, 22–23 January 2019 Page 11 of 13 Information about this inspection Inspectors observed learning in all classes. Many of these visits were carried out with senior leaders. Inspectors also evaluated pupils’ work in a range of subjects, listened to a group of pupils read and reviewed the school’s assessment information. Inspectors spoke to pupils in lessons, met formally with a group of pupils and spoke to pupils at breaktimes and lunchtimes to gather their views on the school. The inspection team reviewed a range of the school’s documents and policies, including behaviour and attendance information, records of visits carried out by the MAT, minutes of the governing body’s meetings and documentation relating to the safeguarding of pupils. The lead inspector met with representatives from the MAT and held a discussion with the chair of governors. Members of the inspection team held meetings with a range of middle leaders. Inspectors considered 36 responses to Ofsted’s staff questionnaire. Inspectors spoke to parents at the start of the school day and considered the 10 responses to Ofsted’s online questionnaire, Parent View, including six free-text comments. Inspectors also considered the responses to a parental survey conducted on behalf of the school.

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.
