A primary school in King’s Lynn has been rated good by Ofsted following its first inspection under a new academy trust.

The personal development, behaviour and welfare of pupils in St Michaels Church of England Academy, in Saddlebow Road, were also rated as outstanding.

It was the first time Ofsted visited the school since it joined the Diocese of Norwich Education and Academies Trust (DNEAT) in early 2015.

The Ofsted report states: “The school’s values are lived and breathed by pupils and staff and pupils show respect for adults and for each other at all times.”

Headteacher Emma Scarisbrick said: “Every improvement, tweak and change we have made has added together to show we are improving outcomes for our children and making a difference to them.

“I am extremely proud of our children, staff and governors and thank all of them for their continuing commitment to the school.”
