Designing a new ice cream flavour

icecream (3)

Ice cream competition

Years 1 and 2 along with Miss Jeffery’s class recently took part in designing a new ice cream flavour. They worked in partnership with the local business Caroline’s Dairy. The children took great pride in their work when designing a new ice cream flavour, name and pot.  Caroline who owns the locally run business was very impressed by the children’s enthusiasm and kindly awarded prizes in each year group for best name and pot. The lucky winners won a tub of ice cream which they were all very excited about and enjoyed taking home to sample.

Thankyou!

Thank you for the many positive comments that we have received about our ‘Good’ Ofsted report. Mrs Henaux has very kindly made a cake for the staff, which is very much appreciated, particularly on a dull January day!Thankyou-cake Cake

Happy New Year!

We hope that you all had a relaxing break and return feeling refreshed. It was particularly  busy just before Christmas, especially with the visit from Ofsted so close to the end of term.

We are very pleased with the report which confirms that Medmerry continues to be a good school. Recent changes to the inspection regime has meant that the threshold for ‘Good’ is now much more difficult to attain than was the case when we were last inspected in 2010.

The report acknowledges the school’s many strengths:

‘The school’s work to keep pupils safe and secure is outstanding.’

‘The school conducts its safeguarding  work very effectively……..it  meets and exceeds statutory requirements.’

‘The school has developed very good relationships with parents and works with them well.’

‘The school is supported by a strong governing body…. Their impact on school improvement and performance is good.’

‘[Schoolsworks Academy] Trust, the governors and the senior leadership team work well together.’

‘Pupils enjoy learning and take pride in their work and achievements.’

‘The number of pupils reaching the expected levels in reading, writing and mathematics has risen across the school to above average at the end of Key Stage 1 and to markedly above average at the end of Key Stage 2.’

‘Teachers have high expectations of pupils’ learning and achievement.’

Our targets for improvement are:

  • to improve the quality of teaching  so that more of it is outstanding
  • to make better use of progress data and to increase  middle leader’s responsibility for school improvement
  • to improve the early years provision by assessing children’s achievement in all areas of learning

Thank you for the support you give the school, which we really appreciate. We look forward to continuing to work together to make Medmerry School the best that it can be for every pupil.

Parents’ Prize Draw for attendance!

As a school our average attendance is very good. We have regular prize draws to reward those children whose attendance is high. However, we are now introducing a prize draw for parents as we recognize your part in getting the children to school and on time. At the end of term there will be a parents’ prize draw. If your child has very good attendance and arrives on time, your name will be entered into a draw to win one of two £25 Marks and Spencer vouchers. We will let you know the two winners before Christmas!
