A Birmingham primary school branded “inadequate” by Ofsted has failed a repeat inspection.
Woodhouse Primary School, in Quinton, was put into special measures after a damning inspection last June.
Now another visit has found improvements have not been made and the school remains inadequate – the lowest possible rating.
A visit from the government watchdog at the end of February found school leaders were not doing enough to “tackle deep-seated weaknesses” at the school.
Inspector Jacqueline Wordsworth also found pupil progress remained inadequate, and that more able children should be performing better.
The critical report means the school, due to become an academy later this year, remains in special measures.
The report read: “At this time the school is not making enough progress towards the removal of special measures. Pupils’ progress in all key subjects for all groups across the school remains inadequate.”
The school had been working with a nearby primary school as part of a pilot project to raise standards, but is set to become an academy in September under orders from the Department for Education.
The move is part of a nationwide programme to move poorly-performing schools out of local authority control and convert to academy status.
Woodhouse School declined to comment.
