Senior leaders and governors are now taking effective action to tackle areas requiring improvement at Fakenham Infant School, Ofsted inspectors have ruled.

The judgement has just been published following a monitoring visit at the school last month.

A report said: “At this stage in the school year pupils are making better progress than in previous years particularly in writing and mathematics.”

The school was judged to require improvement in a full inspection in June last year.

Yvonne Parker-Beeson, the school’s headteacher, was signed off with illness in September and the school remains in the hands of the deputy headteacher.

In November, inspectors revisited the school and found effective action for change was not being taken.

A new chairman of governors has now been appointed.

The school has been told to improve further by teaching pupils to revisit and refine their work, allowing teachers to observe subject leaders and work with the junior school to develop a shared vision for pupils development as they progress between year two and three.
