Garlinge Primary School and Nursery
Garlinge Primary School and Nursery continues to be a ‘Good’ school as recognised in our latest Ofsted inspection (March 2018). The inspection found that staff ‘have an unwavering commitment and determination to provide the best possible experiences for all pupils in a happy, calm and aspirational environment’.
We are a large coastal school to the west of Margate with approximately 800 pupils on our rising roll. We are currently four form entry from Reception to Year 5, with three form entry in Year 6. The school will become four form entry throughout every year group by September 2019. This expansion has been facilitated by an exciting new build, enabling us to develop a cohesive approach to learning within departments. We have also installed an inclusive play area for our amazing children.
We aim to provide a caring, exciting and inclusive learning environment where every child and family really matters with a focus on raising standards alongside the development of the whole child. The school’s values are Perseverance, Aspiration, Respect and Teamwork and all children are familiar with these. The recent Ofsted visit noted that the values ‘pervade every aspect of the school’s work’, and we are proud that is the case.
We are a school with specialist provision for Physically Disabled pupils and provide a link class with Foreland Fields School.
We are a part of a newly established Cooperative Trust, working with Bromstone Primary School and St Mildred’s Primary Infant School. We work closely within our trust to improve all aspects of our practice, including CPD and support for NQTs.
Our large site comprises of a KS2 and a KS1 building and we are continuing to invest heavily in our outdoor learning environment, including newly laid sports courts in one of our three large playgrounds.
We inspire, respect and celebrate achievement and diversity.
