School is out of special measures.
Hurst Hill Primary School at Paul Street, Coseley, was placed under special scrutiny following a visit by Ofsted officials in November.
Standards were found to unsatisfactory.
But following a return Ofsted visit, reporting inspector Jacqueline Wordsworth gave the 352-pupil school a Grade 3 "satisfactory" rating.
"Hurst Hill is now a satisfactory and improving school because of the successful work of the head teacher (Kevin King) and the senior leadership team," she said.
"A menu of excellent assessment processes, the setting of rigorous curricular targets, and thoughtful marking and feedback have all contributed to boosting pupils' achievement.
"Under-pinning this success is the improvement in the quality of teaching.
Approximately a third of the teaching is of consistently good quality, with the remainder satisfactory."
