A Norfolk school is celebrating today after being removed from special measures.

Attleborough Junior School was classed as providing an “inadequate” education for its 420 pupils following an Ofsted inspection last January.

But teachers, governors, pupils and parents were celebrating today after a fresh review undertaken last month deemed that the school had “improved quickly.”

Inspectors said that the school in Besthorpe Road, Attleborough, was now “satisfactory” and had capacity for further improvements.

Chris Read, headteacher of Attleborough Junior School, said: “I am delighted that we have been removed from special measures.

“Staff, governors, pupils, parents, and the county council, have all worked together to bring about the improvements that have enabled us to get to this stage.

“We are committed to making further progress and are pleased that the inspectors have stated that we have 'good capacity to improve'.”

The Ofsted report states that leadership and management is good and there was a common sense of purpose to improve the standard of education at the school.

Rosalie Monbiot, Cabinet member for Children's Services, Norfolk County Council, said: “I am delighted by Attleborough Junior's removal from special measures, and I would like to congratulate the staff, students, parents and the wider community for their support in helping achieve this.”
