A school judged to be requiring improvement is starting to get back on track, inspectors have said.

But the challenge for Litcham School remains to raise standards quickly to “make up for slow progress in the past”, according to a recent report.

Education watchdog, Ofsted, carried out a monitoring inspection at the Church Street school last month after being told it required improvement at a full inspection in September.

A report, published last week, said the school was taking effective action to tackle areas of concern identified.

It said: “Senior leaders and governors have a very clear vision of the improvements they wish to achieve. There is a strong determination to provide a good standard of education as soon as possible.

“Senior leaders have already made a start in putting into place the necessary management structures.

“Teachers share the leaders’ vision and are keen to improve their own practice.”

The report said there was more work to be done to raise standards further including ensuring GCSE and national curriculum assessments were more accurate and reliable, and improving lesson observation reports.
