ST NEOT Community Primary School has been praised by education watchdogs Ofsted after gaining the highest possible ranking in a recent inspection.

The primary school, which has around 80 pupils aged from 4 to 11 on its roll, was marked as outstanding by Ofsted in all four areas of inspection.

The categories included leadership and management, care guidance and support, curriculum and other activities, and teaching and learning.

David Collins, head teacher, said: "I am delighted with the result and especially the recognition of teamwork and collaboration in achieving such high standards.

"The children say they learn something new every day and the inspector found their attitudes to work to be exemplary."

Previously the school had received special recognition of very high national test results in 2013 from David Laws, Minister of State for Schools.

This placed the school in the top 1 per cent of all primary school and academies in England.

Alastair Cuthbert, chairman of governors, said: "We are really pleased that the sustained hard work and team effort of all staff, parents and importantly, the children, has been recognised in this way.

"I am particularly pleased that David Collins' leadership has been highlighted."

The report commented on the strong reading culture in the school and stated that the pupils' achievement in mathematics is outstanding.

The positive start the children enjoy in their early years is also identified.
