Enjoyment and attendance are top of the form at a small rural primary school - but more needs to be done to regulate fluctuating standards.
Ofsted inspectors recognised that enthusiastic teachers made learning fun at Fleggburgh Primary School where standards vary from year to year because of the small numbers of children on role.
The 39-pupil school spreads its year groups across two classes and a wide range of abilities with children often working together according to their skills rather than age.
Inspectors had many good things to say about the close-knit school community and how well children were cared for.
Pupils, the reports says, were adamant there was no bullying and because every pupil and their family are known well, signs of unhappiness are quickly picked up on and dealt with.
The new headteacher is said to have made a good start and quickly gained the commitment of colleagues and parents.

But while pupil's enjoyment of school is reflected in their above average attendance the report does highlight a few areas for improvement including addressing pockets of underachievement, and better long-term planning.
Overall teaching and learning is graded as satisfactory.
In a letter to the children, lead inspector Ian Jones said: “Your's is a satisfactory school. Your teachers help you to make sound progress…You behave well and take pride in what you do. You told us that you enjoy school and try your best and we can see this in the things you do.”
