Ofsted inspectors have said a primary school needs improvement.
St George’s Primary School in Kesteven Road, Stamford, received a three rating, which means it requires improvement. This is the same as the school’s previous inspection, which at that time meant satisfactory.
The inspectors said higher ability pupils do not achieve well enough, there are not enough opportunities to develop pupils understanding of shape, space and measure, beyond reception, and the future leadership was unclear.
But the inspectors said pupils were reaching higher standards than the previous inspection, phonics teaching is effective, pupils are eager to learn and feel safe at school and the school takes great care of its pupils.
Consultant headteacher Fiona Griffiths said staff and governors were pleased that inspectors found many elements of school to be effective.
