Parents air their views in support of teaching
A VILLAGE primary school has been rated as 'good' by Ofsted inspectors.
Old Leake Primary School was recognised for its pupils' achievements, quality of teaching, behaviour and safety of pupils and leadership and management by inspectors.
Headteacher Susan Rayner said the report highlighted what the school already knew and added: "We are a good school which has improved rapidly in the last two years and continues to improve.
"This gives us a great sense of achievement. It is one thing to know that as a school we are good but it is gratifying to have it confirmed by an experienced external body."

Mrs Rayner would like to thank everyone for their support of the school during the inspection, especially for the completed questionnaires on Parent View.
She said: "The responses show overwhelming support for the school from parents for which we are very grateful.
"We are all committed to continued improvement at Old Leake Primary and Nursery School.
"The governors and I are delighted that all the hard work and dedication shown by all staff has been acknowledged in this report and appreciate that the excellent support of parents has contributed to this very positive outcome.
"The vast majority of teaching observed during the inspection process was good and some was outstanding. We are now striving to ensure that, before long, an even higher proportion of teaching is outstanding."
The report highlights that the school is good in all areas, with spiritual, moral, social and cultural education being a real strength.
Lead inspector, Susan Hughes, wrote: "The school has strong links with the church and local community. Pupils are given opportunities to reflect on their beliefs and the beliefs of others."
Areas highlighted for further improvement include strengthening the leadership and management of the school and improving more teaching to be outstanding.
The school has also been busy raising money for the NSPCC by taking part in an exercise class. A total of £1,965 was raised.
