A VILLAGE primary school is celebrating after Ofsted inspectors rated it as ‘outstanding’.
Garboldisham Primary School has 108 pupils and inspectors said the welfare and education of each child stands at the heart of its work.
They praised the way the needs of each pupil were assessed and the school’s ‘innovative and challenging’ curriculum.
“Pupils are excited about their work and have a strong sense of their place in the community and wider world,” says the report.
The school provides outstanding pastoral care and the children’s spiritual, moral and cultural development is also oustanding.
Children feel safe and involved with their school environment and community having designed their outdoor environment, entertained local pensioners and carried out village litter picks. Care for vulnerable children is of a high quality and there is an open door policy for parents and carers.
Headteacher Alice Hemmings said: “The report shows aspects of our work which really sum up what we are trying to achieve at Garboldisham where every child is helped to reach their potential through interesting and enjoyable lessons.
She paid tribute to everyone’s hard work and support from parents as well as the pupils’ ‘impeccable’ behaviour.
