Hard work has led to 'significant improvements' at a Norfolk infants school, Ofsted said in a positive report.
Aylsham St Michael's Infant and Nursery School on School House Lane was given a 'good' overall rating by inspectors who visited on March 24 and 25.
The 144-pupil school, led by headteacher Anne Jewers, was praised for its efforts since the last inspection in 2006.
Inspectors said: 'The school has worked hard since the last inspection and has made significant improvements to many aspects of its work.
