A north Norfolk school where pupils feel safe has been told it is still good.

Ofsted inspectors visited Erpingham Primary School on March 14, four years after it was originally given the good rating - the watchdog’s second highest - in 2014.

They said the leadership had maintained the quality of education since then, and had addressed issues for improvement.

“For example, teachers are consistently using the school’s feedback policy,” they said. “Consequently, pupils are making good progress in writing in English and topic work from their various starting points.”

A report said pupils feel “very safe at school”, with “no bullying of any kind”.

It noted that pupils “love their school”, and talk with “great enthusiasm” about the impact of its forest school in particular.

Inspectors said parents are very happy with the school, though attendance remains an issue.

The school is part of the Blue Sky Federation, with Northrepps Primary School.
