A north Norfolk school has improved its Ofsted rating from requires improvement to good.

Inspectors said that pupils at Northrepps Primary School in Church Street were "well prepared for life in 21st century modern Britain".

And they added: "Governors know the school well and are in no doubt as to where the priorities lie. They are ambitious for all pupils."

Executive headteacher Angie Hamilton said: "Our inspector particularly praised teaching and learning, noting how good it is and how it is continuing to improve due to our fantastic teachers and teaching assistants.

"Personal development, behaviour and welfare were highlighted as a real strength."

School secretary Trish Webster added: "We are immensely proud to be a good school."

To improve further, the inspector said all pupils should be sufficiently challenged.

The school, which has 30 pupils on roll, aged from two to 11, was rated as requires improvement at its previous inspection in February 2017.
