INSPECTORS have given a Fenland primary school a glowing report following a recent Ofsted visit.
Leverington Community Primary School is praised for its high standard of teaching and for the fact the pupils enjoyed learning.
A report by inspector Jackie Cousins, states: "Pupils' behaviour is excellent because of very effective arrangements to promote relationships and discipline.
The report also singles out praise for the work of the teachers, headteacher and teaching assistants.
"Pupils' achievement is good because teaching is effective," the report states. "Children get off to a good start in their education in the reception class because of the effective provision."
The report also highlights pupils' enjoyment at being at school, their contribution to the community and the school's work in raising their achievements.
"Progress in Year 3 to 6 is good," the report continues. "In 2006 the progress made by Year 6 pupils in Key Stage Two was in the top 20 per cent of schools nationally.
"These pupils entered Year 3 with below average levels of knowledge and so they have achieved really well to attain average standards by Year 6."
In all key areas Ofsted grades the school as 'good', which is the second highest grade available.
The school is given outstanding grades for how well the pupils enjoy their education and for adapting a healthy lifestyle.
To improve the school further inspectors say it should increase the proportion of Year 6 pupils who attain the highest level in writing and develop the use of targets so pupils are clearer about how to reach them.
Headteacher Rosie Simmonds, said: "We are absolutely delighted with the report. The team at the school are all hard-working and I am pleased this has been recognised.
