She added: “In all lessons, teachers set pupils a good example of how to behave as mature and responsible people.”
The inspector went on to compliment the 98 pupils for their good behaviour and attitudes to work.
She said: “Pupils behave well in and around school. Older pupils play with and look after younger ones on the playground, and they say they enjoy playing together.”
The inspector noted the headteacher’s drive and ambition for the school were evident in the impact her changes have had over the past two years.
The governors were said to have a clear understanding of the school’s strengths and where it needs to improve.
Headteacher Sue Blyth said the school’s impressive performance was a team effort,
She said: “Our wonderful OfSTED result is testament to all the hard work that the staff, children, governors and parents have put in over the last two years.
“I am very proud of the whole school community and thank them for their continued support.”
