alongside our local Deal primary schools. Northbourne CEP School is a founding Academy member of
the Deal Education Alliance for Learning Trust (DEALT) which is a newly formed Mixed Multi
Academy Trust (MAT) of seven local primary schools within Deal and the surrounding villages.

This unique and exciting collaboration of local schools work together to ensure the very best
outcomes for all pupils and their families within our town. At Northbourne we are proud to be part
of such an exceptional group of schools. Formally working together we are able to share a wealth of professional experience in order for our pupils at Northbourne to benefit from the best our
community has to offer.

The Federation of The Downs & Northbourne Church of England Primary Schools
Historically, Northbourne has been federated with The Downs Church of England Primary School
since 2011. The Downs is a large two form entry Primary School in Walmer. Over the years our two
schools have worked closely together on all areas of school development, providing our staff the
opportunity to share best practice and develop their skills within a dynamic professional setting.
