NORLEY Primary School pupils and staff are celebrating success in two recent inspections.
The school, on Hough Lane, was rated good or excellent in all categories by Ofsted and inspectors from the Statutory Inspection of Anglican Schools (SIAS) team.
Headteacher Ann Griffiths said: “It is wonderful to see what we feel is so special and unique about the school being validated.
“The reports said some wonderful things about the children, commenting on their impeccable behaviour and positive attitudes to learning, as well as their high standards of achievement.”
The Ofsted report also commented on how good the school is in developing artistic and music skills and the “family atmosphere”.
Mrs Griffiths added: “The church inspector made particular mention of our ‘caring harmonious community atmosphere'. Thanks must go to all the hard work of staff, parents, carers, governors, the parish and the wider community for helping us to achieve this.”
Norley Primary School is in a 'federation' with Kingsley St John CE Primary School - which means they share a governing body and a headteacher.
But the Ofsted report states that Ann Griffiths, “despite dividing her time between the two schools, is highly influential in maintaining a most positive ethos, in seeking further improvements in pupils' achievements and in the quality of provision”.
