A west Suffolk primary school has maintained its 'good' Ofsted rating after a short inspection.

Barnham Primary School, near Thetford, was praised in the report for its 'irresistible curriculum' which 'is developing pupils' thinking in exciting real-life contexts'.

The inspector, who visited the school on Wednesday, March 8, also commended the 'welcoming' and 'calm atmosphere' and praised headteacher Amy Arnold for how she and her governors have 'steered the school through reorganisation and integration of years five and six pupils effectively'.

Mrs Arnold said: 'Our recent Ofsted report reflects the dedication and commitment of staff, governors, parents and pupils. We are delighted that Ofsted recognised the exciting and irresistible learning opportunities the children have here at Barnham Primary and the impact this has on their attainment.'

The school's last full inspection was held in 2013.
