A PRIMARY school has been told it must improve following a visit by the schools inspector Ofsted.

Rivenhall Primary School received a ‘good’ rating after its previous inspection in July 2011 but that has now been downgraded.

Inspectors said standards in core subjects had failed to improve over the last three years and in 2013 second year students were “well below average” and up to a year behind other pupils nationally in writing and maths.
