St Anthony's Catholic Primary, in Mornington Road, Woodford Green, rated good by Ofsted
A primary school has slipped from being outstanding to good in its latest Ofsted report.
Inspectors praised St Anthony's Catholic Primary, in Mornington Road, Woodford Green, and said the standards achieved by pupils by the time they left school were above average.
But, under Ofsted's tougher marking criteria, some aspects of teaching came in for criticism, with claims that marking is inconsistent and that staff do not always share knowledge on best practice at the school.
Inspectors said that the behaviour and safety of pupils remained outstanding but rated the school good in every other category, including its leadership.
They said the progress made by pupils was monitored in an effective way, that the school had a strong curriculum and that teaching was good overall.
The inspection was carried out in July but the report has only been published this week.
St Anthony's was rated outstanding by Ofsted in 2010 and in 2007.
