Pupils at Fairhaven Primary School in South Walsham have been praised for their politeness and their role in the local community.
The comments on the behaviour of the pupils are among the highlights of a glowing Ofsted report which also singles out the inspirational leadership of headteacher Melodie Fearns.
After a two day inspection last month Ofsted rated the school, which has 97 pupils aged four to 11, as good for its overall effectiveness and capacity for sustained improvement.
The report said: “This is a good school. It has some outstanding features and provides a stimulating and very caring setting.
“Outstanding spiritual, moral, social and cultural development means pupils behave in an exemplary manner, are very polite and show much consideration for others.
“Their excellent involvement in the life of the school and the local community makes a significant contribution to community cohesion.”

Mrs Fearns was described as an inspirational leader who along with her staff had helped place year six pupils above the national average for English, maths and science.
Ofsted said Fairhaven staff could improve by developing pupils' skills in identifying what steps they needed to take to improve their work.
The school should also widen the role on subject leaders to include strategic planning for long term improvement, the report added.
