Patrington Primary School told to improve pupil behaviour
AN EAST Riding school has been given a notice to improve by Ofsted after the behaviour and safety of pupils was found to be inadequate.
Patrington Primary School has been told to improve pupil behaviour as a matter of urgency.
Ofsted says significant improvement is required in relation to pupils' behaviour, attendance and how effectively leaders and managers establish a consistent approach to managing children's behaviour across the school.
Inspectors found the school's overall effectiveness is not satisfactory because pupils' behaviour is inadequate and leaders have not taken the necessary steps to improve it.

Ofsted inspector Robert Jones said in his report: "Behaviour and safety are inadequate.
"Many pupils, staff, parents and carers voice well-founded concerns about the school's ability to deal with incidents of poor behaviour. In lessons, pupils' behaviour and attitudes to learning vary depending on how engaged they are in their own learning."
Leadership and management are inadequate because school leaders have failed to ensure pupils' behaviour is of an acceptable standard.
Mr Jones says in his report: "Due to the significant weaknesses in behaviour, the school's promotion of pupils' moral and social development is inadequate."
Executive head teacher Sal Smith said: "This outcome is disappointing because for the past 12 months the school has been working closely with behaviour support and educational psychologists to provide appropriate support for a very small number of pupils with behavioural issues.
"However, the school has taken note of the issues and is working closely with the school improvement team to bring about improvements."
Mrs Smith took charge in September last year after the school had operated under a temporary head for a year.
She divides her time between Patrington and Easington primaries.
Chair of governors Allison Sowden said: "The school has had a difficult time in the past with not having a permanent head teacher.
"I am pleased with the progress the school has made over the last year on improving pupil achievement.
"It is disappointing that the behaviour inspection judgement was so low but the school is aware of the behaviour problem and has been working to address them.
"I am sure the school will now only go from strength to strength."
Councillor Julie Abraham, portfolio holder for children, young people and maintained schools at East Riding Council, said: "This is a disappointing report for Patrington and its community.
"There are clear messages as to what needs to be done to bring about improvements and the local authority is working closely with the school to bring about improvements quickly."
