An Ofsted inspection was carried out at Happisburgh Primary School on the 1st December 2015. Please find herewith the initial comments from the Ofsted Inspector.
This school continues to be good. Happisburgh is a small school with a huge heart. You, your staff and the governors have built a caring, nurturing environment on a foundation of strong Christian values. As one pupil put it, ‘I love this school because teachers are kind and we always learn. I like the fact that we are always challenged and my teacher is the best!’ The curriculum is full of exciting and fun activities such as Samba drumming and trips to Norwich Museum to explore what it was like to live in the Stone Age. Pupils also spoke with great enthusiasm about their time in the Dragon’s Den presenting their inventions, hopeful of financial backing. The Happisburgh dragons were just as scary as the professionals (they even wore masks with faces of the famous TV dragons) and ‘They had good reasons for refusing to back you!’ Parents of younger children say, ‘Welly Wednesday is brilliant! The children go out in the mud and there’s lots of different sensory things and activities. My daughter loves it here and is getting on really well.’
