School ‘ready to soar’ after latest inspection
TEACHERS and pupils in Pill are ‘ready to soar’ after their school was taken out of special measures.
Following a visit by Ofsted inspectors on March 23 and 24, Crockerne Primary School has now been rated as satisfactory with elements of good.
In December 2009, the Westward Drive school was placed in special measures after inspectors felt the school was failing to provide an acceptable standard of education.
Since then, monitoring visits have taken place and rapid improvements have been identified.
The school is said to have progressed well in key areas identified in the 2009 Ofsted report and the latest monitoring visit was altered to a full inspection, which resulted in the school being given a new rating of satisfactory.
