THE headteacher of one of Malvern’s largest schools says it is moving in the right direction after an Ofsted report called for widespread improvement.

The schools watchdog will today publish findings from its latest inspection of Dyson Perrins CE Academy.

Judging the school “requires improvement”, lead inspector Lisa Fraser raised concerns students are not making enough progress and teaching, while never inadequate, could improve in many areas.

Headteacher David Griffin said: “The bar has been raised under the new Ofsted framework and our school is already working on areas to improve.”
