Ofsted has downgraded a King's Lynn school from 'good' to 'requires improvement.'
Inspectors have informed South Wootton Junior School on Hall Lane, that standards at the end of Key Stage 2 are lower than the last time they visited in May 2010.
In the summary of key findings the report states: 'The appointment of several new teaching staff has led to inconsistencies in the quality of teaching.
'Teachers' expectations are not always high enough. They do not always set pupils sufficiently challenging activities to do. This affects the quality of pupils' written work and the rate of progress evident in their books.'
However inspectors say that the school have a number of strengths.

The report also said that senior leaders and governors are now acting decisively to tackle weaknesses, particularly in teaching and there is a strong drive for improvement.
