During the inspection no inadequate teaching was observed by inspectors and the majority was judged to be good or better.
Executive principal for the five Academies on the East Coast Emma Hadley said: "We have made outstanding progress since September and staff and pupils are rightfully proud of their achievements.
"We have ambitious plans for the Academy and we are extremely pleased Ofsted recognises we are moving in the right direction."
Ms Harvey also noted that teaching meets the majority of pupils' needs well.
Chief Executive of the GDFT, Barry Day said: "It is only six months since we took over the Skegness Junior School and I am delighted with this very positive inspection report.
"My congratulations go to Mr Smith and staff at the Academy, who are committed and enthusiastic, and to Mrs Hadley for her invaluable support as Executive Principal - they thoroughly deserve this outcome.
"The inspectors noted that the support of the Trust has enabled leaders within the Academy to focus all their time on improvement and this is leading to improvements in pupil attainment which is what our Trust is all about."
Ms Harvey added: "Relationships with parents are strengthening particularly through the work of the parent support adviser.
"Many parents spoken to said they had noticed improvements since September."
