A north Norfolk school put in special measures by Ofsted is 'on track' and improving.
The publication of the monitoring report for Stalham Junior School, following a visit in November 7-8, comes as the Department of Education approved an application for it to become an academy.
It could be sponsored by the Right for Success Academy Trust based at Eaton Hall Specialist Academy, near Norwich, within the next four months.
The trust applied to become responsible for the finances and performance of the school about two months ago.
Headteacher of the Stalham school, Kim Breen, said it was an 'exciting chapter' for staff and pupils and hoped the school could come out of special measures this year.

She said: 'Clearly we have been moving forward. It is important we improve and the children reach their potential. It is very much the intention of the trust to keep the school as a community school, work with us and support us in terms of trying new resources so we can rapidly become an outstanding school.'
Mrs Breen said she was very pleased with the Ofsted report and added: 'It reflects the hard work and commitment of all the staff. The children understand what they are doing and they understand how they can take their learning forward.'

The school fell from good to being put in special measures following an inspection in March.
It was among six rated inadequate after Ofsted visited 28 schools between March 12-22.
