Ofsted inspectors have paid tribute to a Norfolk infant school with 'inspirational leadership' and some 'outstanding features'.
Attleborough Infant School on Norwich Road was given a 'good' overall grade by inspectors, who said it had thrived despite 'considerable staffing disruption over the last three years'.
The 261-pupil school, led by headteacher Gill Howard, was inspected on April 28 and 29.
In their report, inspectors said: 'The headteacher has galvanised the entire school community to become an effective team which strives to improve all aspects of pupils' personal development and their learning.
'Behaviour is exemplary throughout the school. Pupils absolutely love coming to school, so that their attendance has risen significantly.
'Relationships are outstanding. Pupils are extremely polite, get on well with each other and are very accepting of and thoughtful towards those who are less fortunate or different from themselves.'
