A village primary has been rated 'good' by the education watchdog.

An Ofsted inspector visited Dersingham Primary School in November. 

His report praises the school, on Admirals Drive, as a caring community which "nourishes pupils to thrive and flourish".

It says the children are happy there and enjoy learning. They are able to apply their knowledge independently to solve problems in maths and to investigate in science.

The report states children learn to read confidently and quickly develop a love of reading. The children appreciate how their teachers support them to gain important knowledge through a new and ambitious curriculum.

And the school's 172 are also kind and compassionate towards each other and the teachers help nurture highly positive values across the school.

Headteacher Zoe Warren said: "As a school we are all proud of the report. There is always an amazing team effort here at Dersingham and we work hard to ensure every child is valued, supported and empowered to reach their full potential.”
