One of the primary schools that I visit regularly is a delight. The school's atmosphere is caring and friendly and it is properly attentive to educational standards. The inspirational head and the talented teachers are conscientious and systematic in their approach. They are also committed to the broader aims of education. Behaviour is excellent. The creative arts flourish - last year the whole school, from nursery to Year 6 classes, was involved in a week-long art project."
