Bridlington’s Hilderthorpe Primary School has been celebrating after being taken out of special measures.
Ofsted inspectors have ruled that significant progress has been made since a previous inspection, which described it as ‘inadequate.’
Although the school is still ranked as requiring improvement, inspectors who visited it last month found it no longer requires special measures because of the improvements that have already been made.
Amanda Barnett, the school’s acting head teacher, said: “This report captures the hard work and determination of the dedicated staff at Hilderthorpe Primary School.
“We are delighted that the safe, high quality education at Hilderthorpe Primary School has been recognised as we ensure our pupils have the best chance in life to succeed in all they do.
“We are very proud of our pupils, their attitude to learning and their superb behaviour.”
