Primary praised for its “considerable” progress in Feltwell
A small west Norfolk primary school has been awarded a satisfactory rating by inspectors.
Schools inspectorate Ofsted found Edmund de Moundeford Primary School, in The Beck, had made “considerable” improvement since its last inspection and now had some good and outstanding elements.
Inspectors said pupils’ attainment had improved, particularly in maths and English, as well as their rates of progress, and governance and leadership was now satisfactory.
They did say attendance figures were well below the national average, however, and writing remained an issue.
Participation in sports was praised and pupils’ spiritual, moral and social development was said to be “outstanding”.

Inspector Julie Winyard said the school no longer needed to make significant improvements and added: “The headteacher has a crystal clear vision of the school and the improvements that need to be made.
“This is reflected in development planning which is incisive and sharply focused. Middle leaders are committed to the headteacher’s ambition for school improvement as are governors.
