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.
Being Head teacher of a small school, I am fortunate to know each and every pupil and enjoy the close links I have with them as well as with their families.
The 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.
