Glastonbury Thorn School 'Outstandingly Happy'

It is the very first infant school in the country to have achieved the status.

The children began working towards the goal in September 2017, and Tony Seymour the Inspector from Art of Brilliance was thoroughly impressed with what the children had achieved so far.

"This status recognises that as a school we promote the principles of positivity, confidence, flourishing, resilience, optimism, community spirit, kindness, aspiration and strengths," said head teacher Sarah Pearce.
