Banham Community Primary is delighted with its latest Ofsted report which found it to be a good school where pupils achieve well as a result of consistently good teaching.

Inspectors commented on the outstanding features seen in some lessons, with cross-curricular topics such as 'The Rainforest' stimulating children's interest.

It was also noted that “Good pastoral care makes the school a warm and happy place” and that a positive ethos contributes to pupils' personal development and well-being so that they develop into responsible and considerate individuals who enjoy learning. Unusually quotes from the 'supportive parents'' questionnaires were included with one stating “My child is eager to get to school. She arrives with a huge smile which is still there at the end of the day”.

The school now has to work on ensuring that the pupils have sufficient guidance on how to improve their work.
