A village school has been retained its 'good' rating following its first Ofsted inspection in seven years.
Palgrave Primary School, part of the Tilian Partnership multi-academy trust, was praised for "good quality of education" and marked improvements in specific areas following the inspection on March 21.
Ofsted inspector Daniel Gee said the quality of teaching across the curriculum is consistently strong and said the school continued to be 'good', the same rating as its last inspection in 2012.
Head teacher Julia Waters and her staff were committed to ensuring pupils study a wide range of well-taught subjects, strengthened by routine educational visits and high-quality extra-curricular clubs.
"Children continue to make strong overall progress across early years. They enjoy the range of well-designed learning opportunities that adults provide them with, and they have very positive attitudes to learning," he said.

Mr Gee said the school should aim to provide the most able children in early years with additional challenge. He added: "Although children's overall progress is strong, the most able children are not always provided with enough challenge to make the progress they should."
