A SMALL village primary school has said it is 'thrilled' by Ofsted's latest feedback.

Kirtlington CE Primary School near Bicester has been rated 'good' by inspectors following a two-day inspection last month.

Ofsted's report, released on Friday, said: "The headteacher [Louise Williams] drives the school forward with passion and determination.

"The curriculum provides pupils with some exciting and memorable learning experiences...pupils are engaged and motivated learners.

"The school is a harmonious and purposeful environment in which everybody gets along."

All five areas assessed were rated 'good' except early years provision, which was 'requires improvement'.

Ofsted said this was due to a 'period of staffing turbulence' that had recently stabilised.

The 61-pupil primary had previously been rated 'good' in 2015.

School leaders sent a letter to parents on Thursday saying they were 'delighted' and 'thrilled' by the feedback.

They wrote: "The good judgement is richly deserved by the team and I am sure you will join me in congratulating Miss Williams and the team for their incredible hard work and for the great progress and many improvements that have been made since the last inspection.

"We will continue to focus relentlessly on raising standards and aim for excellence in all we do."
