Headteacher Sheriden Edwards said: “We are delighted that Ofsted have acknowledged the many strengths of Denton CE School. The staff, pupils, governors, parents and all members of the community should feel very proud of themselves.

“This is our second ‘outstanding’ grade, the first was awarded in 2010. The school was graded ‘good’ in 2008 after coming out of special measures in 2007. We were delighted to have maintained our outstanding grade under the new framework.

“In September 2012 we federated with Harlaxton CE School who also had a very good Ofsted in February. Our governing body is shared as is much of our staff. Both grades are a testament to how well the federation is working 
together to drive progress in both schools.”

The school has 69 pupils.
