BEAMONT Primary School has taken ‘effective action’ after the school was told to improve by Ofsted inspectors, a recent report has revealed.

The school on O'Leary Street was praised for its progress by senior leaders and governors following its first monitoring inspection after it was graded as requires improvement following an inspection in January.

Although further improvements are still needed, the report highlighted that ‘classrooms and learning areas have a vibrant feel and pupils demonstrate a keenness to learn and develop their skills and ideas’.

It also stated that ‘the local authority is committed to supporting the school in aiding its improvement planning and practice’ and the school has ‘established good networks locally and regionally to support the development of best practice’.

Head teacher Karen Morris said: “As a school we are extremely pleased with this report and glad it has been recognised that we are making progress in the right direction.

“It recognised that staff know their pupils, their learning needs and what is required to enable further improvement.”
