Teachers at a primary school have said they are "delighted" after Ofsted inspectors found it to be 'good' in all areas.

Hintlesham and Chattisham Church of England Primary School, near Ipswich, was visited by Ofsted in November.

In a recently-published report from the watchdog, the school has been rated 'good' – the second-highest rating.

The report praises pupils at the school, stating they are "happy and enjoy attending", as well as describing them as "polite and welcoming to both visitors and new pupils".

It goes on to state that the school has "high expectations of which pupils can achieve" and the "pupils work hard and most achieve in line with expectations for their age".

The school's curriculum was praised, being described as "well-designed to meet the interests and needs of pupils" and "it aims to broaden their horizons".

The report also recognises that "reading is at the heart of what the school does" and the children talk "enthusiastically about the different books they have read".

Headteacher Debbie Jackson said of the report: "We are delighted that the hard work from staff and pupils alike has been recognised by the Ofsted inspectors.

"We have re-designed the curriculum over the last few years and staff have put a lot of thought, care and hours of work into it, so it's great to see they are pleased with our progress.

"It was also lovely seeing that the inspectors had recognised our children are happy here, feel safe and enjoy attending the school."

Jane Sheat, chief executive of the St Edmundsbury and Ipswich Diocesan Multi Academy Trust, which runs the school, added: "The trust is a strong collaborative network of 21 church primary schools in Suffolk. 

"I am delighted that Ofsted recognised the quality of education at Hintlesham and Chattisham. Mrs Jackson and her team should be proud of their achievements."
