A primary school has been judged “outstanding” following an inspection.

The Independent Schools Inspectorate praised staff at Coopersale Hall Primary School, in Flux’s Lane, Epping, in a report released last week.

The report said of the private school: “Teaching throughout the setting is characterised by a thorough knowledge of each child.

"Staff consistently demonstrate high expectations of children both in terms of behaviour and learning.

"Staff are patient and caring, so encouraging the youngest children express themselves with increasing confidence.”
