A primary school has expressed its delight with the outcome of its recent Ofsted inspection.

Five years after its previous inspection, Manor Field Infant and Nursery School in Long Stratton continues to be rated as 'good' by the education watchdog.

Since the 2011 inspection the school has merged with a neighbouring school, Aslacton Primary, becoming part of the South Norfolk Primary Federation.

The report highlighted this as a positive move saying it had 'strengthened the school's leadership because it has provided opportunities for staff to develop their expertise'.

Mrs Alexandra Lightbown, headteacher of Manor Field, said: 'This report is an acknowledgement of the hard work and dedication of our federation staff and governors. We have an exciting and vibrant school and our delightful and enthusiastic pupils reflect this with their enthusiasm for learning.'
