A primary school judged to be “inadequate” in its latest Ofsted report can secure necessary changes under its current leadership.
That is the judgement of inspectors, who wrote the report on Burnham Market Primary School where Rachel Stroulger became headteacher in September 2012, as well as Norfolk’s education authority.
The report said: “The new headteacher has high expectations and firm ambition for the school, Supported by a strong governing body, she is making improvements to achievement and teaching, showing that the school has the ability to secure further improvement.”
Inspectors, who have to consider results and data from the previous three years in their assessment of a school, found achievement of pupils and quality of teaching to be inadequate. Behaviour of pupils and leadership and management were said to require improvement.
Mrs Stroulger said: “It is a school that is moving forward rapidly.”
