GORING Primary School has been praised following two inspections.
It was visited by teams from the Church of England, which monitors Anglican and Methodist schools, and Ofsted.
The church said it was a "generous and understanding Christian community where children... and staff demonstrate great compassion."
Ofsted gave it a "good" rating and said: "There are very warm relationships between staff and pupils... [who] want to do well and are prepared to work hard."
It said more pupils had to improve their reading before the school could be rated outstanding.
