A Thetford primary where pupils enjoy going to learn has been told it remains a good school.
Redcastle Family School, on St Martin's Way, was told by Ofsted that still deserves its good rating, three years after it originally earned the status in 2014.
An inspector said 'pupils told me they enjoy coming to school every day', while parents praised how well children settle in.
The inspection report said: 'A few parents I spoke to from eastern Europe and Portugal are particularly pleased with how quickly their children learn English.'
