THERE has been rapid improvement made at a troubled primary school, according to Ofsted.

The education watchdog said last year that Doncaster Road Primary School needed improvement but after an inspection last month, positives have been noted.

Meetings were held with executive headteacher Viv Hall and headteacher Jane Lea-Jones and Ofsted said both have 'a strong vision for improving the school'.

The report said: "The love of reading is being developed through a weekly 'golden time' reading session in which pupils have the opportunity to read a wide range of materials including electronic devices and reading games.

"Literacy is being further developed through the use of interactive learning walls which encourage pupils to be independent and improve the clarity of planning."
