Two village nurseries in the Yarmouth area have been singled out for praise in Ofsted's annual report.

Ormesby Village Pre-School and Trinity Children's Centre Day Nursery at Martham were among a host of schools, nurseries and childminders lauded after being rated outstanding during 2008/9.

The report name-checks 22 childminders, 10 nurseries, five primary schools, three secondary schools, one special school and one children's home in Norfolk - all of which were rated outstanding by inspectors in 2008/9.

Ofsted chief inspector Christine Gilbert said: “I would like to congratulate all who contributed to the success of outstanding provision across all areas of education, training and children's social care.

“This is good news, not just for the providers but for the children, young people and learners who benefit from such excellent services.”

National highlights from the report show that nearly seven out of 10 of schools were good or outstanding (69pc) - more than ever before.

Last year, 64pc were good or outstanding, up from 59pc in 2005/6 when the previous arrangements began. Eleven per cent of maintained schools were judged outstanding in 2005/6 with 8pc inadequate; in 2008/9 it was 19pc and 4pc respectively.
