A Newport school is no longer judged as inadequate by Ofsted.
Medina House School was rated inadequate following an inspection in June last year.
However, a series of steps, including the appointment of a new head and an Interim Executive Board (IEB), have improved the school, which is now rated as 'requiring improvement'.
Some areas were judged as good, including behaviour and safety of pupils, while the leadership and management of the school was praised.
Matt Atkins, chair of Medina House IEB said: "There is still work to be done but the school is now on sound footings from which it can continue to improve.
"I am particularly pleased we have been able to demonstrate this improvement in a relatively short time.
"This is down to all those connected with the school including the head, staff and also the parents who have been extremely supportive."
Ofsted inspectors found 'the very strong leadership and management of the headteacher, senior management team and governors (IEB) had secured rapid improvements in teaching and achievement of pupils.
The school was also given a number of areas to further improve, such as making sure the quality of teaching was consistent across the school.
