Five months after being warned it had not done enough to pull itself out of special measures Burrowmoor Primary School has received encouraging feedback from Ofsted.
Teaching has been praised and staff have been commended for demonstrating a resilient determination to improve, inspectors said.
“Leaders and managers are taking effective action towards the removal of special measures,” inspectors said, and assessment in the early years has strengthened.
Children at the school have a positive attitude, the report said, and were seen to be “considerate” young people who “try hard to complete their work” and “are eager to do well.”
Interim headteacher Anne McCarthy was praised for strengthening leadership considerably and for leading “important changes to the culture of the school.”

Burrowmoor is an Active Learning Trust school and Trust chief executive Gary Peile said the senior leadership team deserved praise.
He highlighted Mrs McCarthy and Jason Wing as needing praise for implementing the changes that were needed.
“The Trust and the school know there remains work to do and will continue to support all staff to ensure pupils get the very best opportunities in their time at Burrowmoor,” he said.
Burrowmoor was entered into special measure following an Ofsted inspection in March 2015.
