Welcome to Norton CEVC Primary School.  We hope that you will enjoy looking at our website and take the opportunity to look in closer detail at the life of our school.  We currently take children from Foundation Stage through to Year 6.  We have seven classes with approximately 200 children on school roll.

Our school is very much a part of the village community, with strong links with the church and other aspects of village life.  It is a happy school with high educational standards and a caring family atmosphere.   Our aim is that all children enjoy their time with us at school and experience growing confidence and success in their learning.  Our staff are highly motivated and dedicated to providing an excellent start in education for each and every child. 

The school environment is an attractive place for learning and recreation, accommodating spacious classrooms, hall, library, group room, kitchen and office space.  Outside, the school has an excellent play area consistent of hard and soft play areas. There are plans to acquire a land for a new playing field/sport pitch adjacent to the current site.  Currently, the children use the large hard core area and the village hall playing field for sports and PE activities.  Our school meals are of a high quality and currently all children aged 4-7years (FS, Y1, Y2) may have a free school meal every day. 
There is an outside classroom for quiet reflection, a sensory garden with seating area and raised beds for gardening activities. We have a wildlife garden which includes a pond to encourage a range of habitats for wildlife.  All children use this area for outdoor learning in their time at school.  We have Eco-Schools’ Green Flag status.

Parents are very supportive of the school and the school values the partnership we have with parents. 

We are happy for you to visit us at any time and look forward to welcoming new children to the school.  If you would like to contact us, please telephone or email to arrange an informal visit.
