THE quality of teaching, pupils' behaviour and a headteacher's leadership at a Fenland school were all praised by a government inspector.
They were three of the highlights for St Peter's Junior School, in Wisbech, following its latest Ofsted inspection.
Great pride is also taken in caring for the needs of each child, according to the inspector.

Mrs Skelton, who was described as "enthusiastic and hardworking", was praised for her role in rising expectations and moving the school forward.
The school was encouraged to raise standards further in English, mathematics and science, and to provide more opportunities for pupils to gain a better understanding of other cultures and faiths in the UK.
Mrs Skelton added: "As a school, we will continue to work hard to improve the areas highlighted for development.
