Swanley and District Primary Schools

Entries on this page include the OFSTED Grade for each Primary School as they are published, also recording change from previous Inspection result,  together with some other relevant information below. It is worth using the search engine on the Home Page to pick up other references to individual schools.

You can read the full Report on each Primary School at OFSTED. In September 2012, OFSTED revised its Inspection Grading System, giving each school a main Grade: Outstanding, Good, Requires Improvement (previously Satisfactory), and Inadequate (two sub categories - A school that has serious weaknesses is inadequate overall and requires significant improvement but leadership and management are judged to be Grade 3 or better - A school that requires special measures is one where the school is failing to give its pupils an acceptable standard of education and the school’s leaders, managers or governors have not demonstrated that they have the capacity to secure the necessary improvement in the school). Each Report carries a brief description of the school before justifying its decision in more detail. If a school is in Special Measures or Serious Weaknesses, the results of further monitoring visits are noted.

You will find a good website to provide a host of factual data about Kent schools here.

You will find an item about Swanley primary school offers  in April 2016, looking at oversubscription and vacancies here, and for 2015 here.

Reports published post-August 2016 are in the first table, followed by other tables containing older ones (a school may have been inspected in the summer term of 2016 with a report published after 1st September 2016).
