One of the first schools to join Schoolsworks – Medmerry Primary School in Selsey – has secured another Good rating from Ofsted, following its inspection in December 2018. The inspector praised the friendly, welcoming and well behaved pupils and recognised the work which has been done to raise both the quality of teaching and the curriculum taught in the school since the last inspection. The report noted the breadth of the curriculum taught at Medmerry, alongside the wide range of extra-curricular experiences that are included to help extend pupils’ learning. It recognised the work being done in particular areas of teaching, remarking that staff have worked hard to create a ‘buzz’ about reading throughout the school in the last few months.

The Ofsted report also mentioned the strong standard of mathematics throughout the school. HM Inspector, Catherine Old, remarked that pupils’ outcomes have been raised substantially as a result of the improvements which have been made since the last inspection in 2014.

As a Trust we are proud of the team at Medmerry Primary School and are delighted that their hard work, enthusiasm and dedication have been justly rewarded with a positive Ofsted report. In Schoolsworks, we are determined to improve outcomes for all our children and there is no doubt that those who attend this school are provided with broad and interesting primary education. The whole Medmerry team is a credit to Schoolsworks, and a pleasure to work with.
