A village primary school is celebrating after getting a successful Ofsted report.
Inspectors went into Fylingdales C of E school with just a day’s notice in June, the week after the half term break.
They ruled that the school which has just 65 pupils was good in most areas and outstanding when it came to the behaviour and safety of pupils.
The school was judged in four categories.
The achievement of pupils was said to be good with “standards rising rapidly”, the quality of teaching is good and “teachers are very successful at meeting pupils needs in lessons” and leadership and management was good with inspectors reserving praise for headteacher Lisa Jones.
They said: “The headteacher has steered the school effectively through a period of turbulence in terms of staffing.”
A score of outstanding was given for the behaviour and safety of pupils with the atmosphere at the school being described as harmonious.
Mrs Jones added: “It was my fifth inspection, third as head, and the whole process has become more intensive and the bar has been raised everytime. In just two days the inspector observed 14 lessons, looked at every workbook in the school, scrutinised data and records.
“I would like to thank everyone involved in our school for working so hard.”
