A primary school where children "flourish" has received a 'good' Ofsted rating.
Clements Primary Academy in Haverhill was described as being a “caring and inclusive” school in an environment where pupils enjoy coming through its doors.
An ambitious curriculum, good behaviour and a strong safeguarding culture were also highlighted in the report following the inspection in October.
Headteacher Vicky Hogg said: “We are absolutely thrilled that the report recognises and pays tribute to what our school is like on a day-to-day basis.
“We have fantastic support from our parents and I am delighted for our staff who always go above and beyond for our pupils.
“Everyone has played their part in receiving this ‘good’ Ofsted rating and I think it is positive news for the whole Haverhill community.”
Ofsted inspectors said parents “overwhelmingly” felt their children were well cared for, adding: “Parents are typically happy with how well their children achieve.
