"School leaders and governors are not effective in eliminating weaknesses in teaching and pupils' achievement.
"Their efforts to improve the school fall well short of what is urgently required."
Inspectors went on to say pupils are often unenthused by their lessons.
As a result, they do not listen attentively, concentrate well or make a good effort with their work.
The head and governors are now working closely with the local authority to put an action plan together to address the concerns raised by inspectors and make improvements as quickly as possible.
Head Andrew Jackson said: "We are extremely disappointed to be placed in special measures but we are all committed to work together to improve standards as quickly as possible to move the school forward.
"We want to provide positive and beneficial learning environments for pupils in all year groups at the school to give them the best start we can in their primary education.
"On behalf of the school I want to reassure parents, who have always been very supportive, that we will do everything we can to make things better and get the school back on track."
The school, which has more than 500 pupils, was said to have a friendly atmosphere with the pupils showing each other respect. Pupils in the nursery and Year 6 classes are making good progress with their learning due to good standards of teaching.
The school, in Wold Road, west Hull, is also forming a partnership with Eastfield Primary School to try to make more improvements.
Chair of governors, Pat Scott, said: "It is clear from the inspection that as governors we must make more progress in challenging issues that are key in improving the school as whole.
"I am confident the school will make these changes quickly and become a great place for learning once more."
