A Great Yarmouth infant school has received a glowing seal of approval after it was rated as good for its overall effectiveness by Ofsted.
South Town Infant School, which has 164 pupils aged four to seven, was also rated as good for its capacity for sustained improvement following a two day inspection last month.
Although the Ofsted report says the school on Tamworth Lane has a small core of persistent non attenders, inspectors said it did not impact on the good progress of pupils, especially in their literacy and numeracy skills.
The report states: 'The school provides well for its pupils and community. Parents and carers recognise the school's commitment to pupils' well-being and personal development.
You may also want to watch:
'Pupils build good social skills, show positive attitudes to learning, behave well and have a good understanding of healthy lifestyles.'
The report goes on to praise the school's extra curricular activities, such as nurture groups and its forest school, and the way children learn about the diversity of life in the country.
