Sybourn Primary School, in Sybourn Street, Walthamstow, rated satisfactory
A primary school has been rated satisfactory by inspectors after they raised concerns about quality of teaching.
Ofsted said Sybourn Primary School, in Sybourn Street, Walthamstow, was meeting minimum standards but said improvements needed to be made before it could be classed as good.
Inspectors said there was not enough good teaching and that the progress made by pupils in their learning was inconsistent.
But they praised the good behaviour of children at Sybourn and said they were well looked after in the school's safe environment.
Inspectors said Sybourn's leadership and governors were making improvements, but some procedures for identifying weaknesses needed to be more rigorous.
The school was previously rated satisfactory after its last full Ofsted inspection in October 2009.
A total of 670 children are on the school roll.
The report was published today (Monday January 14) following an inspection last month.
