A struggling Rise Park primary school has been told it it making “reasonable progress” towards moving out of special measures.

Rise Park Junior School was found to be providing an unacceptable level of education in an Ofsted inspection last year.

“Weak” teacher knowledge in Maths and “inadequate” day-to-day teaching were among failings cited by the report in September.

Since then the Annan Way school has had two short-notice inspections, most recently at the beginning of July.

In an Ofsted report published last week, head Zoe Sharman was told pupils are now making “better progress” and the proportion of “good” teaching is rising.

But inspectors added: “Despite these improvements, pupils making nationally expected or above expected progress is not yet high enough.”
