Another primary school in Dagenham has been rated good by Ofsted.
Grafton Primary School in Grafton Road was praised for its “confident, polite and articulate” pupils in a recent inspection.
The school was last inspected in November 2013, when it also received a good rating.
Headteacher Martin Nicholson said: “We are delighted that Ofsted recognises the achievement and positive behaviour of all our children. It is a reflection of the hard work and dedication of our staff and governors.
“The support we receive from all our parents and carers has enabled us to create a genuine partnership working together to support all our children.”
