The 127-pupil school achieved a grade 2, "good" in all key areas, with a grade 3, "outstanding" for attendance.
Areas for improvement included developing a system of monitoring and evaluation the new curriculum to secure the progression of knowledge, skills and understanding in all subjects.
Mundesley Juniors headteacher John Hunter was delighted that the report highlighted the school's many strengths, and that pupils, parents, governors and staff were recognised and valued.
"Within the last year, Mundesley and Bacton First Schools as well as ourselves have been inspected, and all three have been judged to be good schools. This gives a powerful message to the parents in our community that wherever their child goes to school, they will receive an excellent education," he said.
