Leaders and governors of Fakenham Junior School are starting to take effective action to tackle problems highlighted by Ofsted in July.
A monitoring visit to the school, previously found to require improvement, took place in September.
Ofsted inspector Ian Middleton said some plans were still at an early stage and the school needed to take further action in several areas.
They included setting higher expectations for pupils’ presentation of work and raising the quality of topic work.
Pupils and parents should be given more information to help speed up improvements. Use should be made of links with good or better schools.
