Rapid improvements after turbulent time at Dereham school
Pupil progress at Grove House Nursery and Infant School in Dereham is improving rapidly following a period of considerable turbulence, an Ofsted inspection has found.
Following low assessment results at the end of Year 2 in 2009 and the absence of the headteacher, inspector Judi Bedawi found that acting head Margaret Vaissiere was providing the school with increased stability and an improvement in academic results.
This led to her awarding a good mark for overall effectiveness.
The report said: 'There is an ongoing and rapidly accelerated pupil progress throughout the school because teaching, lesson pace and work of support staff is consistently good, empowering pupils' learning.
'The school has moved on at a good pace and with renewed purpose over the last year.'
