9:00am Monday 13th August 2012 in News
STANDARDS at Stockton Heath Primary School continue to improve as it looks to recover from failing two Ofsted inspections in three years.
A monitoring inspection in July found that satisfactory progress is being made as the West Avenue school.
The assessment of pupils is now more accurate, leaders and teachers have a clearer view of progress and action has become more focused, says Ofsted.
The gap between struggling pupils and those doing well is narrowing, it said, with leaders aware of the gaps in attainment.
Although still inconsistent, the standards of teaching is also improving while most children behave well in school, Ofsted added.
Stockton Heath Primary School will continue to be monitored as it looks to come out of special measures.
There have been significant changes made with three teachers having resigned.
Six new teachers appointed, five of whom will start in September.
New head teacher Dan Harding will also start in September and he has vowed to drive up performance.
