Berewood Primary retains ‘Good’ OFSTED rating

Friday, March 10, 2023

Following a recent visit from OFSTED, Berewood Primary School has retained its ‘Good’ rating, receiving overwhelmingly positive feedback from the inspector.

The report praises the highly skilled teaching and strong culture of safeguarding, as well as the inclusivity of addressing the needs of pupils with special educations needs.

‘The school’s Berewood Bonds of being kind and helpful, respectful and safe, resilient and hard-working are known and understood by all pupils. These values are threaded through the wider curriculum and help pupils when making decisions and understanding any consequences.’ 

‘Pupils are polite and courteous. They behave well and move sensibly around the school. Relationships between staff and pupils are warm and respectful.’

The School’s headteacher, Megan Carter, has only been in post since January, however having previously held the role of Deputy Head she was well-placed to continue the excellent work at the school. Mrs Carter said that having an OFSTED inspection in the third week of her headship was “a little overwhelming” but thanked staff and the Chichester Academy Trust for their support, and that she was “thrilled” with the outcome.

Huge congratulations to the whole team at Berewood Primary School on their deserved success.
