The head of Swaffham Junior School says staff are working hard to get out of special measures.

As reported in the Lynn News on Friday, Ofsted inspectors John Mitchell and Susan Heptinstall felt the school is not making enough progress towards the removal of special measures, imposed in February, during a monitoring visit in November.

Headteacher Tracey McCarthy said: “We are of course disappointed by the findings.

“Staff have continued to work extremely hard and our pupils continue to be put at the centre of everything we do.

“We are pleased the strong relationships at the school were recognised, as were the green shoots, in terms of progress.

“There has also been a

great deal of support from parents for which we are grateful.

“We will continue to focus on making improvements as providing a high standard of education has to be our priority.”
