Norfolk's smallest school has been lauded by Ofsted for its good standards, positive ethos and the outstanding care it offers its pupils.

Shelton and Hardwick Community School in south Norfolk was judged a good school by inspectors and praised for its “tranquil yet stimulating atmosphere”.

Inspectors said the school's 16 pupils were achieving well and that behaviour and attendance were both excellent.

They said support for the individual pupil “lies at the heart” of the school's work and said they had left the school with lasting memories.

Elva Chilton, headteacher, said: “We are proud of our school and the education we offer to our pupils and Ofsted's comments have reinforced our belief that this is a good school.

“I am particularly pleased that Ofsted has highlighted the care and support we offer to our pupils as our school is committed to nurturing each and every pupil to reach their potential.”
