A village school has the right priorities to get better, but is not doing enough to demonstrate the progress made, a new letter says.

Inspectors returned to Docking Primary School this month after being deemed to require improvement by Ofsted last December.

In a letter to the school’s headteacher David Baldwin, inspector John Mitcheson said: “Your improvement plans rightly prioritise strengthening teaching and leadership.

“They include clear actions and milestones to check whether improvements are being made.

“However, there are no numerical targets to enable you to illustrate that the actions taken are leading to sufficient improvement.”

The school is planning to form a new federation with the Sedgeford and Brancaster primary schools in May.
