Children and staff at Woodbury C of E Primary School are celebrating after the school was given the thumbs-up by Ofsted inspectors.
They rated the school as good, with outstanding features.
In the school’s report, lead inspector John Laver praised the quality of teaching, which he says has improved since the last inspection, and pupils’ attainment, which, in most cases, is well above the national average by age 11.
He says pupils enjoy going to the school, and are willing to support each other.
Headteacher Nigel Tancock said: “The report clearly acknowledges the significant improvements that have been made since our school was previously inspected, as well as endorsing the areas we have already identified for further improvement.
