Teachers and pupils at a village primary school are celebrating after receiving the results of their latest Ofsted inspection.

Necton Primary School was graded as good in almost all areas looked at by inspectors during their visit last month.

Inspectors also graded the school “outstanding” for the curriculum it provides, the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of pupils and how well pupils behaved during and enjoyed lessons.

In their report inspectors said: “Lively teaching, high expectations and effective pupil management draw and extremely positive response from pupils.”

The report went on to say: “Providing an excellent curriculum has been a key factor in the drive to raise standards.

“The creative linking of subjects reinforces basic skills effectively and an outstanding range of enrichment activities, including residential visits, visitors, special events and out-of-school activities add enormously to pupils' enjoyment.”

The school got only one “satisfactory” rating which was for “how well learners developed workplace and other skills that will contribute to their future economic well-being”.

Head teacher Graham Steel said: “Our wonderful children, the talented staff team and our very supportive parents, carers and friends should be extremely proud of this report. It truly reflects what a good school this is and it celebrates our many achievements.”
