A primary school has upped its performance after previously being told it needed to improve.
Gooderstone Church of England Primary Academy has been rated as 'good' by Ofsted following an inspection carried out towards the end of term in July.
The education regulator's conclusion serves as positive news for the school, which was assessed as requiring improvement following its previous inspection in November 2016.
Ofsted's report says progress made by school leaders since the last inspection has been universally recognised, while systems to check the effectiveness of teaching, learning and assessment are "robust".
Teachers were deemed to provide pupils with "interesting learning experiences" across the curriculum, and those with special educational needs or disabilities (SEND) are supported effectively.

The report did, however, note that leaders at the school must work to "raise pupils' attainment in reading, writing and mathematics".
It also highlighted a need for improvement when it comes to the "accuracy of assessment" in foundation subjects to equal that of English, maths and science.
