A village primary school is celebrating top marks after achieving an incredible fourth ‘outstanding’ Ofsted report in a row.

It was revealed this week that the school is one of just 20 in the country to have achieved the same honour.

Staff, pupils and parents have been left delighted by the report released on Ofsted’s website this week – three weeks after the inspection.

It said the Main Road school got top marks for the quality of teaching, behaviour and achievement of pupils, among other areas.

“This is an outstanding school. Pupils make outstanding progress and engage in memorable learning experiences,” the report read.

“Standards are well above the national average in reading, writing and maths by the time pupils leave school.”

Chair of governors Mo Hickling said: “I’m delighted inspectors praised our students, they really are excellent.

“It is the fourth time we have been rated as outstanding which just goes to show how hard everyone is working.”
