FRIDAY Bridge Primary School is a shining example of inclusion of all pupils, where teaching and leadership are good, according to Government inspectors.
An inspector from Ofsted, the Office for Standards in Education, said the school, with 106 pupils on the roll, was a happy and friendly school where all staff were committed to making a difference to the lives of all the pupils.
"Staff know their pupils well and build strong relationships with them so that lessons run smoothly," says the report.
"Teachers use a range of imaginative strategies to stimulate and engage their pupils, so that lessons come alive. In the majority of lessons pupils are engrossed in their work and this is a key reason why behaviour is good. Teaching assistants are valued members of the team."
