A west Suffolk primary school which had previously been told it required improvement has turned things around with a recent 'good' rating from watchdog inspectors. 

Beck Row Primary Academy, in The Street in Beck Row, near Mildenhall, was rated 'good' overall and in every category by following an Ofsted inspection on December 13 and 14. 

This comes just three years after the school, part of the Academy Transformation Trust, was told it had received a 'requires improvement' rating from the watchdog. 

The latest inspection found Beck Row Primary Academy was a "polite and friendly" place to learn, where staff know pupils well and pupils are safe.

Inspectors praised the school's curriculum and said teachers are trained to adapt lessons.

They said staff are "experts in teaching early reading" and teachers are quick to identify and provide 2effective, additional support for pupils who need to catch up".

The inspectors said staff were well-trained to help pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities. 

They highlighted the school's creation of the "Beck Row Way" which sets out important beliefs and rules for the pupils. 

Inspectors also found staff felt supported and parents have noticed the school has "changed for the better". 

They said some staff are still getting to grips with teaching the new curriculum, which means there are rare occasions where they don't adapt their lessons well enough.

"The school, and the trust, should ensure staff have the training and guidance they need to teach the curriculum consistently well," the report read. 

Beck Row Primary Academy has a capacity of 270 students aged between four and 11 years old.

The school will now be visited by Ofsted inspectors every four years – or at any time that concerns are raised.
