Governors and parents of Eccles, Hargham and Wilby Primary School are celebrating praise for pupils and staff in an Ofsted report.
The inspector said the good care and guidance that
pupils received, plus the strong Christian ethos, prov-ided good-quality personal development for all pupils. His report added that standards at the end of both key stages were now above average.
The 31-pupil school was very inclusive, and pupils new to the school were quickly accepted and supported well," said the inspector.
He added that the pupils liked school and were eager to explain the advantages of being at a small school.
The inspector concluded that "all the leadership team have a realistic and strategic view for the school's future development" and that the school's capacity to continue to improve was now good.
Fr Chris Davidson, chair-man of governors and rector of the Quidenham group of parishes, welcomed the report. He said: "The inspector was extremely thorough and he was impressed with the school and the fact that good progress was being made and standards were improving."
And head Katherine Thompson said: "I am thrilled that the children's achieve-ments have been recognised and delighted that the school's mission to provide a high quality of education within a happy learning environment was so evident during the inspection."
