A NORTH Devon Primary School recently inspected by Ofsted is providing a satisfactory standard of education and a good level of care and support, says the report from inspectors.

The 161-pupil St Helen's C of E Primary School in Abbotsham was inspected at the end of March, and their report just published describes it as 'an improving school' where the leadership, supported well by the staff, has implemented measures to address previous underachievement.

Inspectors noted the high level of support from parents of pupils at the school, saying: "Parents greatly appreciate what the school provides for their children, particularly the good level of care and support. Typical was the comment of one parent that 'We are very proud to be part of the school and appreciate the hard work of the staff.'"

The school was judged satisfactory overall, with many good features. In particular the early years foundation stage was judged to be good, with outstanding leadership and management.
