STANDARDS at three Dearne schools need to improve, Ofsted has said.

Inspectors identified areas for improvement following visits to Wath Victoria Primary School, Swinton Queen Primary School and Kilnhurst St Thomas Primary School.

Wath Victoria, receiving its first visit since being placed into special measures last February, has seen improvements in teaching but some pupils still make “insufficient progress.”

Teachers at Queen Street have improved their evaluation of students’ attainment in English and maths. However strong school leadership to drive forward improvement is sometimes lacking.

Inspectors noted that pupils’ progress in English and maths at Kilnhurst St Thomas has not been fast enough.
