A primary school has swept the board in a glowing Ofsted report – one of the first released in the new academic year.
Wreningham Primary School was told by inspectors that it is 'outstanding' in all five categories – leadership and management, behaviour and safety of pupils, quality of teaching, achievement of pupils and early years provision – after a two-day visit in July.
The report builds on an already positive 'good' rating from 2009.
Inspectors noted a 'relentless focus on improving achievement' from school leaders, leading to excellent standards in teaching.
They said: 'Teamwork is a strength of the school. All staff have high ambitions for the pupils and work well together to make sure all pupils succeed.
'Teaching is outstanding because teachers have high expectations of all pupils. They plan activities that enthuse the pupils and make them think hard and persevere with their learning.'
The report also said pupils' behaviour is 'impeccable', they feel 'exceptionally safe' in the school and are prepared for 'life in modern Britain'.

Rob Jones, headteacher, said: 'Our school motto is 'team' and the outstanding grade confirms that 'together everyone achieves more'.
'We have strived to create an ethos where children, parents, staff and governors can work together, providing the best opportunities for all the pupils to flourish.'
He said that work by the staff 'enables our children to be the best they can be' and thanked parents for their support.
'The fact that we are a small, local school helps us foster a caring, family environment, with every child knowing they are a valued and integral member of our school and its success,' he said.
'Although we have attained good test results, our approach is to develop the whole child through a creative curriculum, where sport, music, art, and drama are valued equally as highly as test results.'
