St George's Cathedral RC Primary School is making "excellent progress" says the church, just days after it was revealed as one of 55 London schools placed under special measures by Ofsted.
An Ofsted inspection last summer deemed the Westminster Bridge Road school "unsatisfactorily effective because too much of the teaching is unsatisfactory and too many pupils are not achieving as well as they should be" and that there had been "unsatisfactory improvement since the last inspection".
This week the Evening Standard published a table of 55 schools in the capital which had been placed under special measures, including St George's and a number of other Southwark schools.
A spokesman for the Archidiocese of Southwark's Commission for Schools and Colleges told the London SE1 website that they were "delighted by the excellent progress made by St George's Cathedral School in addressing the issues of concern identified by Ofsted".
The spokesman added: "Southwark LEA advisers are providing strong support for the school and the Diocese is providing pastoral care. We look forward to celebrating its emergence from special measures soon."
