Kingswood school's 'inadequate progress'
Kingswood College of Arts has been told by Government inspectors it is making inadequate progress in raising achievement.
The Wawne Road school was issued with a notice to improve in January after an Ofsted inspection.
Now inspectors have made a monitoring visit and told headteacher Nicole Swallow and her team that issues flagged up previously have not been addressed quickly enough.
In January, the school was told to improve teaching and attendance, as well as make sure pupils made better progress in English, maths and science.

But in a letter to the headteacher, inspector Gill Salter-Smith said: "Having considered all the evidence, I am of the opinion that the school is making inadequate progress in addressing the issues for improvement and raising the students' achievement."
The report noted teaching at the school had improved, but said there was still a small proportion of lessons where learning and teaching are inadequate.
Ms Salter-Smith said the slow improvement had been in part down to the dismantling and rebuilding of the senior leadership team.
She said: "The process of restructuring the senior leadership team slowed down the actions planned to improve students' progress and the quality of provision.
"Since July, with the strong and determined leadership of the headteacher and a strengthened senior leadership team, the school has acted swiftly and demonstrated a shared commitment to improvement."
Nigel Richardson, director of children and young people's services at Hull City Council, said: "We have been working very closely with Kingswood and are confident things will continue to improve apace."
No one from the school was available for comment.
