ETEACHING is not consistently good enough — but is improving quickly — at an Isle of Wight Primary School, according to Ofsted.

Inspectors rated Greenmount Primary School, Ryde, as requiring improvement, one below its previous rating of good, following an inspection earlier this month.

Inspectors found standards of achievement and progress in reading and mathematics had not been good enough and often the work they were given was not challenging enough.

Inspectors also found the progress of disabled students and those supported by the pupil premium was not good enough.

Governors were said to have not always been as effective as possible at holding the school to account.

The report did conclude, however, that good standards were being achieved in writing and the quality of teaching was improving quickly because of the desire of teachers to improve outcomes for pupils.

Inspectors said there were good relationships between pupils and adults and youngsters were making better progress.

"The headteacher and senior leaders have clearly identified where improvements are needed and staff speak positively of recent improvements in teaching and the way their performance is measured," the report stated.
