A mid-Norfolk headteacher has hailed his school a 'thriving' one after Ofsted inspectors praised pupils and teachers in their latest report.
Carbrooke's St Peter and Paul primary school on Church Street in the village was rated a 'good' school where progress made by students was higher than the national average.
Headteacher of the school Nick King said he and the governors were 'delighted' with the report.
He said: 'We are a thriving school, and there is a real buzz about the place.
'Much has happened at the school in recent months with the opening of the new library and the new classrooms.

Inspectors told the school that at times teaching did reach that top level. Outstanding schools, according to Ofsted, ensure children are well equipped for the next stage of their education.
The report said: 'Teaching is consistently good and at times outstanding.
'This is because teachers are skilled in using a range of teaching methods that engage and excite the pupils.'
Inspectors added that the school's governors know the school and its context well and 'provide strong support for the headteacher's vision for improving the school'.
The last inspection by Ofsted in January 2011 rated the school as 'satisfactory', which under the new terminology would mean the school requires improvement.
This means the school has improved over the past two years and is now into the 'good' bracket.
