A Sprowston junior school which inspectors say is loved by its parents has been praised.

Falcon Junior School was told it is still a good school by Ofsted in July, five years after it was given the original rating.

Inspectors said 'parents love their school', and many are 'full of enthusiasm and appreciation for the way the school educates and cares for its children'.

They noted that teaching is 'consistently strong', the curriculum is 'rich and diverse' and safeguarding procedures are 'rigorous' and 'meticulously kept'.

Inspectors also recognised acting headteacher Rob Clarke, who has stepped into the role after headteacher Richard Boyce became ill.
