A school on the coast has been praised by the education watchdog for its 'calm and productive environment'.

Caister Academy, part of the Creative Education Trust, has been rated 'good' by Ofsted for the second time in a row.

Inspectors visited the school in November and described it as a place where the "leaders’ high expectations permeate pupils’ daily experiences".

"Pupils value their time in school. They learn well and they value the wide range of opportunities to be involved in something beyond the academic curriculum.

"Pupils know how to behave, and they do so well," inspectors said.

The report noted that students benefit from a well-considered personal, social and health education (PSHE) curriculum.

"They are taught to respect others. They know it is fine to be yourself," it said. 

An area where the school could improve was the curriculums in a minority of subjects which are "not designed or taught as well as in most".

Inspectors said that pupils learn less well in these subjects than they do in others.

Helen Seath, principal, said: “I am delighted that the success of our school has been recognised.  

"Caister’s success has been a team effort and I want to thank our incredible staff, students and families for the way in which everyone has worked together. 

"I am particularly proud of the work we have done with our students around anti-bullying and personal development. 

"It is great to see our school ethos of high ambition recognised. 

"We will continue to build on this success, maintaining our core values which make this school the wonderful place it is.”

Ben Driver, executive principal, said: “The strong position of the school is testament to the sustained hard work of the whole Caister Academy community and it’s particularly pleasing to see our amazing staff and students recognised in Ofsted’s report."
