Our school vision drives our teaching:
Our School Vision:
Through our curriculum we teach our Christian values so that our children are prepared spiritually, morally and culturally for a life in modern Britain.
Strive: that our children lead happy and fulfilled lives through seeing the best in others and in themselves; they are resilient, forward looking and appreciative
Think: that our children have the essential knowledge, skills and behaviours to guarantee that they thrive in modern Britain; the wisdom to preserve the beauty of our planet; the wisdom to make informed, positive decisions
Act: that our children celebrate differences and value everyone in our Norton family and wider community; they celebrate belonging to a local, national and international community and they expect inclusion
Respect: our children know that everyone has the right to be themselves. Norton is a place where everyone can feel safe, be happy and learn. Everyone at our school is equal and acts with respect and kindness towards each other. Our children respect themselves and are proud to be part of an inclusive school.
A welcome from Mrs Farren...
I am proud to lead a wonderful team who are dedicated, skilled and caring. Everyone who works at Norton has shared values and aims; ensuring that each child reaches their full potential. We know that this can only be achieved when children feel confident enough to learn from their mistakes and challenged to reach personal goals in a happy and exciting learning environment.
The school continues to go from strength to strength. We have grown from teaching in mixed age classes to single year groups which is hugely beneficial when looking at the progression of the curriculum. We are big enough to provide an array of clubs and extra- curricular activities; small enough to know each child and family individually.
We have had much to celebrate over the past few years….
Norton team provides exciting learning opportunities where children can express themselves and develop their self-confidence. With a strong moral base running alongside excellent teaching, we support children to become successful, confident individuals ready for the challenges of secondary school and beyond.
