A Derbyshire school has received top marks from education watchdogs.

Creswell CofE Infant and Nursery School was rated ‘outstanding’ by Osted following a recent inspection.

Praise was heaped on the Gypsy Lane school’s pupils, teachers, governors and parents.

In their report, inspectors said: “Children make rapid and sustained progress and maintain high standards.

“The behaviour of pupils is outstanding.

“They are always polite and courteous to adults and to each other.

“Teachers have high expectations of pupils and develop excellent working relationships in the classroom.

“They make sure that work is well matched to pupils’ needs, enabling them to gain skills, knowledge and understanding rapidly,” the report added. A spokesman for the school – which has 260 pupils – said: “We are very pleased and proud – a big thank you to everyone.

“We could not have achieved this without the support of the whole community.

“We have excellent staff, governors, supportive parents, grandparents and carers and, most of all, wonderful, well-behaved, polite, hard-working children.”
