Pupils at Caston primary school are celebrating after Ofsted inspectors praised their enthusiasm, behaviour and motivation.

A report, published on Friday, said the school was good in every inspected category and inspectors were particularly impressed with the extent to which pupils made a positive contribution to their community.

They praised the “consistent improvement” at the school and said teaching, management and personal development were all good.

Ofsted said more pupils were achieving the highest levels each year, teachers planned very well to meet the needs of all pupils and pupils who found learning difficult made better progress than might be expected with some reaching above average standards.

The report also said the children behaved well and took part enthusiastically in everything the school had to offer while a major strength of the school was that all adults, including the site manager, played a full part in the life of the school and in supporting pupils' learning.

Headteacher Leonie Smith said: “We are thrilled with this report which is testament to the hard work of our pupils, staff, governors and parents. The inspectors have highlighted the improvements we have made to teaching and learning and the curriculum and have recognised that this has led to improvements in achievement. Our pupils have made us proud.”
