A Norfolk school has been praised by inspectors for its dedicated staff and hardworking pupils.

A short inspection carried out by Ofsted at Ashill Voluntary Controlled Primary School, near Watton, said the school continued to be rated as good.

The 'warm and respectful' relationships between adults and pupils were praised by inspectors, who visited the school in March.

The report added: 'Staff know every child well. As a result, pupils are achieving well, academically and socially, in this welcoming, calm school.'

Headteacher Steve Creasey said: 'We're delighted to receive such a positive outcome and report. We've worked hard as a team and the report is an excellent reflection of the dedication of the staff, pupils, parents, governors and the wider community'.
