Staff and pupils at Brington Primary School are celebrating after receiving a ringing endorsement from education inspectors.
In a new report, Ofsted has rated the rural primary school as ‘good’ and praised pupil’s “excellent behaviour”.
Inspectors also described the school as a “great place to learn and grow”.
The news comes in the wake of an Outstanding Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) report from the Church of England which highlighted the school’s caring environment.
Acting head teacher, Mark Farrell, said: “We are absolutely delighted. Pupils, parents, staff and the whole community work closely together to make our school a special place. Ofsted inspectors and the recent SIAMS inspectors have confirmed that.

“The comments within the Ofsted report, combined with our fantastic SATs exam results last year, all of which were above national standards, highlight the fact that the children of Brington Primary School behave well, enjoy going to school and achieve great results. This is an exciting time for Brington as we embark on a new journey to become an outstanding school.”
Chairman of the governing body, Nick Card, said: “The Ofsted report’s findings are a result of a whole school team approach over the past two years. It’s a tribute to the hard work and commitment of all staff.”
