School Description

St Laurence In Thanet Church of England Junior Academy is an average-sized junior school. Pupils are taught in two classes in each year group. There is a breakfast club and an after-school club, which are managed by the school. A very large majority of pupils are White British. The proportion of pupils eligible for pupil premium funding is much higher than the national average. The proportion of pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities is close to average. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment in English and mathematics. The school works very closely with its sponsor, the Diocese of Canterbury. The school also works closely with the Broadstairs, Ramsgate, Ethos, School Improvement Company and the Ramsgate Achievement Partnership. Inspection report: St Laurence In Thanet Church of England Junior Academy, 3–4 July 2018 Page 8 of 10 Information about this inspection Inspectors observed learning in lessons across a range of subjects. During visits to lessons, the inspectors spoke with pupils and looked at their work. Inspectors held meetings with pupils and the inspectors talked informally with pupils around the school. The inspectors listened to some pupils read and talked with them about reading. Inspectors observed pupils’ behaviour in lessons and around the school. Inspectors met regularly with the senior leadership team. Inspectors met with the safeguarding leaders and the lead teachers for English, mathematics and pupils who have SEN and/or disabilities. The lead inspector met with trustees and a representative from the Diocese of Canterbury, and had a telephone conversation with the school’s improvement adviser. Inspectors scrutinised a range of documentation, including leaders’ evaluation of school performance, school development planning and documents relating to pupils’ behaviour and the quality of teaching and learning. Inspectors also reviewed the minutes of meetings of the trustees and information relating to safeguarding and attendance. An inspector met with parents and carers before the school day, and the inspection team considered the 32 responses to Ofsted’s online questionnaire, Parent View. Inspectors also took account of the responses by staff and pupils to Ofsted’s online surveys.

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.
