The management and governors of a Ryde primary school are taking positive action to tackle areas of the school that have been deemed as needing improvement, according to a recent Ofsted report.
Dover Park Primary School was told it needed to improve standards following an inspection by Her Majesty’s Inspectors back in June. Now, a recent visit has shown some improvement but Ofsted are saying that the school should ensure that wherever possible, the success of action taken to improve the school is judged according to its effect on pupils’ progress.
The section 8 report says that the Isle of Wight Council should ensure that work of the mathematics and English consultants in the school is led by the specific areas for improvement identified in the inspection report and that the Council’s “strategy group” makes consideration of pupils’ progress a central feature of its judgments about the school’s improvement.
