Swaffham Junior School, which has 295 pupils aged seven to 11, was put on special measures in March last year.
Inspectors from Ofsted visited the school for two days in February and in a letter to the school they say progress since being put on special measures was satisfactory and progress since the last monitoring inspection was also satisfactory.
John Francis, an Ofsted inspector, said that the school could not take on newly qualified teachers.
Since being put on special measures the school has been led by a specialist county head teacher but now the governing body of the school has appointed a new head teacher, due to take over in April, the letter said.
It added there was also a new chairman of the governors at the school.

The monitoring report said progress in English in Year 6 was good but pupils' handwriting was weak.
Behaviour was mostly good in classrooms and good progress had been made ensuring that behaviour was effectively managed so that lessons were not disrupted.
Quality of teaching had continued to improve
The school had made good progress in leadership and management, but still relied heavily on outside support to sustain improvement.
