Medmerry Primary School in Selsey has secured another Good rating from Ofsted, following an 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. Medmerry has been classified as a ‘Good’ school since 2010.
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.
Mr Michael Tidd, Head of School, comments: “Medmerry School is a welcoming and friendly community, and we pride ourselves on a broad and engaging curriculum, so it’s pleasing to see these qualities recognised in the inspection report. The outcome reflects the hard work of the whole school community – parents, staff and pupils – all of whom work together to make Medmerry such a great place to teach and learn.”
Medmerry Primary School is part of Schoolsworks Multi-Academy Trust and Chris Seaton, Schoolsworks CEO adds: “”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. I would like to personally thank the Head, the staff, the children and their parents and carers – they are a strong community and a pleasure to work with.”
