"SHILLINGSTONE Primary School creates a very positive climate for learning," says OFSTED.

The inspection was made in October under the new and rigorous 2012 framework and the school is now graded as good overall, with outstanding behaviour and safety.

OFSTED said lively teaching and a stimulating curriculum captured the children's interest.

The children say: "It's never boring!"

Teaching was graded as consistently good with some teaching that is outstanding. Pupils feel very safe, thoroughly enjoy school and their attitudes and behaviour are exemplary. The inspector also found that a strength of the school is its inclusive nature. Head teacher, Mrs Jane Whitehouse-Sharpe said: "The school has gone from strength to strength. We have grown into our wonderful new school building and worked very hard to ensure that all children enjoy learning."
