Holt Primary gets ‘good’ news from inspectors

All is 'good' for a North Norfolk primary school, which has been praised in its latest inspection report.

Holt Primary School on Norwich Road got good grades almost across the board in the report by Ofsted.

The school, which has 162 four-11-year-olds, is run by headteacher Beryl Knowles. It was inspected on December 9 and 10.

Inspectors said: 'This is a good school. Pupils achieve well. From often low starting points they make good progress over their time in the school to attain broadly average standards.

'The school knows and values pupils as individuals. It fosters their confidence well by providing a wide range of opportunities for success and, through the international dimension of the school's work, develops well their awareness of how other people live.'

The report added: 'Teaching and learning are good, underpinned by the good relationships and mutual respect that staff and pupils have for each other.

'Leadership of the headteacher and senior leaders is good. The school has restructured since the last inspection and the delegated leadership has added impetus to improvements.'
