GOOD behaviour and improved teaching have been recognised at an Isle of Wight primary school in special measures.
Niton Primary School was placed in special measures last year, but in the latest monitoring inspection, Ofsted inspectors found the school was making reasonable progress to improve.
Commenting on the leadership provided by executive and associate headteachers Stephanie Praetig and Martin Lee, Ofsted said: "The appointment of the executive headteacher in January has provided school staff with greater clarity and a stronger understanding of the extent of change that needs to take place.
"Her clear direction and focused attention to details have brought about significant changes since her appointment."
The report found the quality of teaching had improved, but remained too variable.
Pupil behaviour continued to be one of the school’s strengths, and youngsters were said to be caring towards each other and respectful and courteous to adults.
The report added: "Many parents and carers spoken to were very complimentary about the recent changes and the improvements to both teaching and leadership."
It said a very small number has raised concerns about communications with parents about the significant changes.
