School Vision


Learning for Life… to be the best you can be


Our Vision at Happisburgh CE VA Primary & Early Years School is for our children to recognise and achieve their fullest potential as individuals. We strive to support their academic, creative, personal, moral and spiritual development, within a happy, caring  and stimulating environment with Christian values at it’s heart. We are a nurturing Church school with a strong family ethos, and place high value on our links with the local church and the wider community.

We look to achieve outstanding standards of teaching and learning and ensure high standards of achievement, to create a community where learning is for life and all forms of learning and achievement are celebrated. Classroom focus is on challenge and engagement, with the formal curriculum being enhanced by extended activities to promote a healthy lifestyle.

Together, with parents, we raise our children’s aspirations and achieve excellence through their enjoyment of learning. We aspire to inspire everyone to be the best that they can be, to provide innovative learning opportunities in a forward thinking environment, where all pupils are prepared to embark on future challenges with excitement and confidence, and where our children are ready to begin their next step of education at secondary school.
