A primary near Norwich which has been 'galvanised' by its head has been told it is still a good school.
Poringland Primary School was visited by Ofsted inspectors in December, having been rated good by the watchdog in 2013.
In the latest visit, inspectors told Peter Dean, headteacher, 'you have set the school on a new and upward trajectory'.
'You have galvanised and motivated the whole staff with the new school vision, 'happy, active, inspired, healthy learners',' they said.
Later in the report, they said: 'Pupils behave exceptionally well. They said that behaviour at the school is almost always good and that bullying is exceptionally rare.
You may also want to watch:
'Pupils are confident and articulate, and rightly proud of their school.'
Inspectors noted that parents are 'highly supportive' of the school, with one saying it had 'moved from strength to strength'.
