A junior school where pupils behave excellently has been told it still deserves its good rating.

Taverham Junior School was visited by Ofsted in June, almost four years after it was originally graded good.

Inspectors said head Paul Stanley and his deputy had given the school clear direction, ensuring it continues to “improve rapidly”.

They praised pupil’s “excellent behaviour” and said: “Pupils are keen to learn and willing to support one another. They move around the school very sensibly and are polite to staff and visitors.”

Mr Stanley said he was very happy with the report.

“The report acknowledges and praises many positive aspects of the school’s ethos, relationships, and provision - I am particularly pleased with the inspector’s statements that ‘pupils enjoy coming to school’ and that school leaders ‘put the needs of the children at the centre of all they do’,” he said.

“I hope that, on reading this report, everyone associated with the school will feel as proud as I am to be part of Taverham Junior School.”

He thanked staff for their hard work, pupils for talking “so eloquently and positively” about the school and parents and carers for their ongoing support.
