A village school has gained extra marks from Ofsted inspectors after improving to a ‘good’ rating.
Walsham-le-Willows Primary, which was graded ‘satisfactory’ in 2009, was praised for being a ‘very caring and nurturing school in which pupils thrive and generally make good progress with achievement’.
Inspectors noted that ‘teaching is at least good and some is outstanding and pupils’ outstanding attitudes to learning mean they soak up knowledge’.
The school is not yet outstanding because ‘in some lessons teachers’ expectations of a few pupils are not sufficiently high’.
Head Angela Hunter said: “The progress we’ve made is down to the hard work of all the staff, children and governors.”
