Winterton school taking "effective action" say Ofsted's education inspectors
WINTERTON Junior School has had a monitoring visit by Ofsted, after being told it required improvement last year.
Ofsted inspectors concluded that the school had begun to take "effective action", after being given the "requires improvement" rating in November 2012.
The school, on West Street in Winterton, was visited by inspectors on January 21 this year to see what action had been taken to improve the school.
During the visit, meetings were held with the headteacher, deputy headteacher, literacy leader, a school improvement officer from the local authority, the Chair of the Governing Body and two other governors.

In the monitoring report, Ofsted wrote: "The headteacher and other senior leaders are well aware that in order to raise achievement the quality of teaching needs to improve.
"Leaders and governors have begun to take action to improve teaching through general professional development covering aspects such as assessment, marking and pupil target setting. However, improving the quality of teaching and learning does not appear as a stand-alone priority in the school's development plan.
"Senior leaders and governors have begun to take effective action to tackle the areas requiring improvement identified at the recent section 5 inspection."
