Pupils and staff at a Yarmouth school were last night celebrating being removed from special measures and judged good in many areas.

North Denes Middle School was placed in special measures in November 2006 but, following a visit last month, Ofsted inspectors have ruled it has made significant progress.

Their verdict has brought the number of Norfolk schools on special measures down to 11 from a peak of 14 in December.

Inspectors observed that North Denes was an “improving school” with an active school council and good behaviour among its pupils.

They judged the curriculum, personal development of pupils and the care, guidance and support offered to pupils as good.

However, pupils still needed to work at further improving their range of writing skills and calculation abilities in maths.
