Village primary forms partnership with top independent school
1:16pm Wednesday 11th September 2013 in News
A ONCE struggling village school has formally joined forces with a top-performing independent school.
An agreement has been signed to link Messing Primary School, now an academy, in a partnership with New Hall School in Chelmsford.
Governors decided Messing should become an academy after being placed in “special measures” by Ofsted in March 2011, although it has since improved and is working to become a “good” school.
Teachers from New Hall School, rated “outstanding” have been helping to drive up standards at Messing.
Schools Minister Lord Nash said: “This brilliant partnership has real potential to re-shape the futures of pupils involved.”
