A VILLAGE school is celebrating being given good marks by Ofsted inspectors.
During a recent visit to Moggerghanger Lower School, the inspectors were impressed by many areas of the school.
The last time inspectors visited the school was in 2002 when they also gave the school a good rating.
The good grade was given in most categories with inspectors concluding that pupils enjoyed school and valued the high quality environment that it provides for them.
"They feel safe and cared for and pupils' behaviour is good and managed well in classrooms," says the report.
The only area the school did not register a good mark was in its curriculum and other activities where inspectors said: "Because subjects tend to be taught as discrete elements, opportunities are occasionally missed to reinforce earlier learning or to extend and capitalise on pupils' interests and knowledge from one subject through to another."

There were also two areas inspectors said could improve further and that was to raise standards of mathematics to match those in English and to help pupils to reinforce skills from one subject by applying them in others.
Commenting on the report, school headteacher Paul Marshall said: "The school was judged at the time of the last inspection as good and has continued to improve.
"With the latest developments it is well placed to continue to do so.
