A school is acting with “vigour” to address shortcomings identified by inspectors.

Cliff Park Junior School in Gorleston was visited by Ofsted in May and the watchdog found things seemed to be looking up since their last visit in October.

Inspector Maria Curry wrote that effective action was being take to lift the school from “requires improvement.”

The school has been identified as a “coasting” school that does not stretch its pupils enough.

The letter went on: “Leaders have accepted and acted with vigour on the areas for improvement identified in the previous inspection report...This has helped to establish a greater collective commitment to improvement and staff morale is now strong.”

Meanwhile teaching is improving but not consistently good and learning is still sometimes disrupted by pupils who do not listen when they should.
