A BLACKBURN school has continued to go from strength-to-strength, an education watchdog said.

St James CE Primary School in Earl Street continues to be 'good', Ofsted said following a short inspection.

In a letter to headteacher Philip Morgan, inspector Sue Eastwood, said: "Everyone in school lives up to your school motto 'exceptional in all we do'.

"You have created an environment that fosters the care and nurture of the whole school community, driven successfully by your Christian values."

He added teachers' subject knowledge is strong.
