Jo Nutbeam, who has been head teacher since last September, said: 'We have got a really dedicated staff, really supportive parents and lovely children.
'The work had been going on since September and everybody has pulled together really well. The school has gone from strength to strength. I like the fact that everybody was mentioned in the report; the teachers, the parents and the teaching assistants it shows it was a real team effort.
She is proud of the school's wildlife area, revamped by a team led by teacher Julie Wones, which took learning outside too.
The report said that to rise further to be outsanding the school needed to improve the skill development of the more-able readers, opportunities for reception children to work outside and the poor attendance of some pupils.
Ms Nutbeam said: 'We are going to extend our library area to provide more books to give the more-able children wider reading opportunities and we are continuing to develop our outside areas so we can build on that across the year group.'
