Ofsted Inspectors praise Meadow View Primary fightback

A SCHOOL slammed for inadequate teaching is already making strides towards improvement, inspectors say.

Meadow View Primary was put into special measures by Ofsted after a poor inspection in February.

But the report noted that the school’s newly-appointed leadership team had not yet had enough time to implement meaningful changes.

Now a follow-up visit has confirmed that improvements have taken place since the new faces—led by head teacher Karen Smith—joined last September.

She said: “We accept that teaching had been inadequate in the past, and the Advertiser article about being in special measures did have some parents concerned. But this visit has been very favourable.
“We have been focused on the drive towards improving learning and behaviour management, and I need to thank all the staff for their hard work so far.”

Mrs Smith was a lead teacher in literacy and PSHE in Sheffield before taking the post at the Kimberworth school ten months ago.
