Closer Links With Shaftesbury Primary To Improve Fontmell’s School

Ofsted inspectors judged Fontmell Magna’s St Andrew’s Primary as ‘inadequate’ in 2017.

Last week, the Sherborne Area Schools Trust made two appointments which they hope will improve the school’s performance ahead of an expected Ofsted inspection.

Pupil numbers have fallen from around 150 children to around 90 pupils on the register. Fourteen headteachers have been involved with the school since 2017 and the trust says t the school ‘needs quality and stability in leadership’.
