A north Norfolk school which “pupils love attending” has been rated good by Ofsted.

The education watchdog gave Stalham Infant School and Nursery the rating following an inspection on July 6.

In her report, lead inspector Bessie Owen said pupils “generally” behaved well in lessons, were supported to achieve highly, and paid attention to their teachers. 

The report said: “Children love developing their physical skills through a range of activities such as using pedal toys and gardening. 

“They are supported to develop their imagination and curiosity. They play happily with their peers.

“Pupils can remember what they have been taught and are confident about how well they are doing.” 

The school has 136 pupils aged two to seven, and its headteacher is Glenn Russell.

This was the first time the school had been inspected since it became an academy in 2019. 

Under its previous name, Stalham Community Infant and Pre-School, it was also rated good, in 2017.

It follows the junior school, which is on the same site, getting a good inspection report earlier in the year.
