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 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.'
