A PRIMARY that is converting to academy status after the government listed it among the 200 worst-performing in the country will join forces with a top school.
Oak Meadow CoE Primary in Fareham has already put in an application to be sponsored by the Anglican diocese of Portsmouth, as reported by The News last month.
And the diocese has linked it with Bransgore CoE Primary in the New Forest – a teaching school judged ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted inspectors.
It will now be in a position to offer Oak Meadow, which has a ‘satisfactory’ grade, advice and support.
Bransgore’s head Peter Pretlove said: ‘It’s a great opportunity for our schools to work collaboratively for the benefit of the children.’
