A Norfolk school is celebrating today after being removed from special measures.
Attleborough Junior School was classed as providing an 'inadequate' education for its 420 pupils following an Ofsted inspection last January.
But teachers, governors, pupils and parents were celebrating today after a fresh review undertaken last month deemed that the school had 'improved quickly.'
Inspectors said that the school in Besthorpe Road, Attleborough, was now 'satisfactory' and had capacity for further improvements.
