Pupils at a Norfolk village school were praised for taking responsibility and showing independence in a report by Ofsted inspectors.

Stoke Holy Cross Primary School was described in the report as outstanding and the pupils' 'exemplar' behaviour was praised.

Inspectors described the pupils as having a love of taking responsibility and showing independence, as well as showing a genuine pride in their achievements and in their school.

After a previous outstanding report in 2007, the school was rated outstanding in every area of inspection in the latest report.

The report highlighted the strong relationship between the pupils and their teachers and the various events that bring the school closer to the community.

A tea party was held at the school which brought together the younger and older generations of Stoke Holy Cross, with the help of the Let's Get Going scheme of parent helpers.

The party was for local residents to share their experiences of the Second World War and the 1950s following a school project about this era.
