Pupils, parents and staff are celebrating after a school was taken out of special measures by Ofsted for the first time since 2014.
Bisham CE Primary School, in Church Lane, received the news following an inspection carried out in December – its third since it was rated 'inadequate' in all areas about 18 months ago.
The report highlighted improved co-operation between teachers, noting that pupils were ‘beginning to respond well’ and that clearer guidance was also being given to teaching assistants.
And the senior leadership was praised for 'an increasingly clear vision for the improvement' and for making sure classroom targets were being met.
However, the report stated that in order to improve more needed to be done to assess the progress of the children and raise both achievement and expectations of achievement.
It also recommended an external review of the school’s governance and use of the pupil premium.
