The executive headteacher of a primary school near Southwold has spoken of his "immense pride" after his school maintained its 'good' rating following a watchdog inspection.

Inspectors from Ofsted praised staff at Reydon Primary School for keeping the school's curriculum under constant review to ensure the highest expectations of what pupils can achieve, while the school was said to have an effective early years reading curriculum.

Teachers were said to present information clearly and to check that pupils had learned and understood the curriculum, while their learning was checked to identify and correct misconceptions.

Children's behaviour was good, the inspectors said and pupils responded well to the school's new behaviour policy, while they learned about other cultures and faiths and developed wider talents and interests through trips and visits.

The inspection, conducted in February, also found that the school monitored pupils' attendance to ensure it was high, while providing regular training opportunities for staff.

There were also regular training opportunities to help staff to be effective in their roles.

On the negative side, the report found "a few subjects" where teachers were not sufficiently clear about what should be taught and when and did not build effectively on what pupils already knew.
