IMPROVING standards at a village school have been praised by inspectors.

Ofsted inspectors visited Therfield First School earlier this year, and in their report praised it as "an outstandingly effective school much appreciated by parents and children".

Headteacher Linda Meredith said she was "extremely proud" of the findings.

She said: "This is a strong and fair reflection of the commitment and hard work of everyone involved.

"A party was held after the end-of-term assembly so that staff, governors, students and parents could celebrate the school's fantastic achievement."

The inspectors found that "the vast majority of children achieve extremely well. This applies equally to all groups of children including those who find learning difficult, and those with particular gifts or talents."

They also praised the schools curriculum for having "an exceptionally interesting range of activities both during and beyond the school day, which provides an extremely well-balanced education.
