A SCHOOL put on special measures is still failing to improve student's grades.
Welling School was placed on the emergency improvement scheme in January after Ofsted reported its effectiveness, standards and provision and management were all 'inadequate'.
The inspectors' latest report, based on a visit at the end of June, said standards in English, Maths and Science still lag behind the national average.
The report praised the school for improving teaching standards, attendance, and access to private study.
Twenty-eight staff are expected to have been replaced by September.
