PUPILS and staff at a Great Yarmouth first school can relax and enjoy the summer break in the knowledge that their school has been judged as outstanding across the board in its latest Ofsted report.

Alderman Swindell First School was dubbed by inspectors as "an outstandingly effective school", where "standards are high and children make outstanding progress."

Inspectors praised the leadership of the headteacher, the strength of teaching and the exemplary behaviour and maturity of the pupils.

They said parents were "highly appreciative of the school" with one describing it as "absolutely wonderful" and saying that "every child definitely matters".

Ofsted noted that everyone involved in the school works in partnership to ensure all children benefit from everything on offer.

They said: "All individuals, children and adults alike, are highly valued, nurtured and challenged to do their best and expectations for everyone are high. Consequently, children thrive and become exceptionally well-rounded individuals."
