Standards improving at Stockton Heath Primary School
11:20am Tuesday 1st May 2012 in News
STANDARDS are improving at Stockton Heath Primary School, according to Ofsted.
The school is making ‘satisfactory’ progress in recovering from a failed inspection last year.
Following a monitoring inspection carried out on March 20 and 21, inspector Margot D’arcy said: “The school has set challenging targets for pupils’ achievement and is making effective use of data from an improved assessment system to track pupils’ progress.
“This data still needs to be moderated to be certain of its accuracy, but the system has good potential to inform action to improve pupils’ achievement.
“The data shows that since the last monitoring inspection fewer pupils are making inadequate progress in reading, writing and mathematics and more pupils are making accelerated progress. This is the case in virtually all year groups at Key Stage 2.”
She also said that improvements in leadership have been made but added the amount of children failing to make ‘the rapid progress needed remains too high’.
In June last yearthe West Avenue primary was placed into special measures for the second time in three years.
But school leaders and officials at Warrington Borough Council have vowed to up standards.
Another monitoring inspection is likely to take place in September.
