An Ofsted inspection at Broughton Infant School has praised the senior leaders and governors for taking “effective action” towards improvement.
The school was downgraded to “requires improvement”, in all areas following an inspection in July.
The initial report said that the pupils “do not achieve as well as they should because teaching is not consistently good.”
It also said that “standards have fallen steadily since the last inspection.”
Attendance was said to be “below average” and the behaviour of some students was criticised.
However, a subsequent Ofsted visit on October 3 has a positive message about progress at the school.
Inspector Christine Raeside said that the senior leaders and goverors are “strengthening the whole school approach to assessment.”
Attendance levels are increasing as a result of the steps taken by the school.
Ms Raeside said that the new behaviour and anti-bullying policies are “having a positive impact on pupils’ attitudes to learning.”
She praised the school’s governing body as “constructively self-critical and reflective.”
But the report did caution that there is currently no “strategic plan for how the school will become good.”
