School Description

This primary school is smaller than the average-sized primary school. The majority of pupils attending the school are from White British backgrounds. About one fifth of the pupils are from minority ethnic backgrounds and a similar proportion of pupils also speak English as an additional language. The proportion of pupils who have special educational needs or disability is broadly average. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils supported by the pupil premium (additional government funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and children who are looked after by the local authority) is below average. Children experience early years provision on a full-time basis in a combined Reception and Year 1 class. Pupils in other year groups are also taught in mixed-age classes. An above-average proportion of pupils join or leave the school other than at the normal times. This includes an increasing number of pupils from other countries. Most have English as an additional language. Some have experienced little previous schooling and can speak little or no English when they enter school. The majority of these pupils join the school later than the normal time and some spend a relatively short time in this school before moving on to other settings. The school meets the government’s current floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils’ attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics. The school works cooperatively in collaboration with two other primary schools. This represents a significant change in the leadership of the school since the previous inspection when the school was federated with a different primary school. Currently, the work of the school is overseen by an executive headteacher and a single governing body. Leadership is also supported by a head of school. The current executive headteacher is leaving at the end of this term and a new executive headteacher has been appointed to commence his duties in September. Inspection report: Surfleet Primary School, 20–21 April 2016 8 of 10 Information about this inspection The inspector observed eight lessons and saw the work of three teachers. He was accompanied by the executive headteacher during these visits to lessons. A wide range of documents were scrutinised, including records relating to pupils’ behaviour and attendance, safeguarding procedures and the school’s analysis of how well it is improving. The inspector examined the school’s systems for checking progress and records of checks on the quality of teaching. The inspector talked to individual pupils and a representative group of pupils about the school and their work. He listened to individual pupils read and attended an assembly and breakfast and after-school clubs. The inspector also looked at samples of pupils’ work across a range of subjects and classes. The inspector held a meeting with members of the governing body and held meetings with school staff – mainly senior and middle leaders. He also met with a representative from the local authority. The inspector took account of the views expressed in the 10 online responses to Ofsted’s Parent View questionnaire and in 10 staff and 11 pupils’ questionnaires. He gathered the views of several parents during informal meetings at the school during the inspection. The school’s use of the primary physical education and sport funding and the pupil premium were also considered.

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 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.
