Curriculum
Our long term plans give the overview of each subject taught each year and this is delivered through topic work, where possible.  English and Mathematics may be taught through cross curricular topics or as discrete subjects in themselves.  Reception children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum which is taught in a cross-curricular way.  There is a mixture of child and adult initiated learning over a range of topics which change half termly.   See links to our long term plans here.
Additional information on any of the above can be obtained from class teachers via the school office.
Teaching of phonics and reading schemes 
A wide range of reading materials is used, but the core scheme is Oxford Reading Tree. A range of other scheme books are available to support levelled reading until children’s reading is fluent.  There is a good range of quality reading books for children to take home.  
In phonics teaching, we use a variety of resources including Jolly Phonics, Letters and Sounds, BBC Letters and Sounds, Phonics Bug, Phonics Play.
Behaviour Policy
The school’s Behaviour and Discipline policy is available on our website. Alternatively, a copy can be obtained from the school office.
Pupil Premium (includes Services Premium)
The premium is used to support children’s individual learning, such as additional SEN support, resources in school or extension or challenge activities for the more able children.  
Last year’s premium 2013-14 of £10,730 was used to support children’s educational needs through individual & group support or through resources purchased.  A wide variety of books have been purchased for children of all abilities to read at home.  The new books have inspired children’s confidence in reading and our results show that our children make good progress over the year.  Children with special educational need make at least good progress, and often outstanding progress, by the end of year five.
Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND)
All children are welcome to apply for a place at this school. We have a policy of being fully inclusive.  Our SEND Policy is available on the website or via the school office.  From 1 September 2014 all schools should make parents aware of their SEND provision.  Click here for further information.
Access Facilities
This is a single storey building on one level with a separate new double class block for older pupils. All areas are accessible. A disabled toilet is available next to the children’s cloakrooms and in the new class block. The school’s Accessibility Plan is available on the website or can be obtained via the school office.
Equalities’ Data
Schools are required to produce an Equalities Policy which can be found on our school website and to publish data relating to an area of equality for all every 3 years. We analysed our provision of extra-curricular provision by gender in 2011-12 and found that 32 girls and 31 boys took part in one or more activity at Norton CEVCP School.  We sent out a questionnaire to all parents and carers in 2013.  No actions were identified through this survey.  
We reviewed our Equalities Plan in 2014 and the current focus is on the monitoring of progress of children with SEN throughout the school

Pupil Premium (includes Services Premium)

The premium is used to support children’s individual learning, such as additional SEN support, resources in school or extension or challenge activities for the more able children.  

Last year’s premium 2016-17 of £33,640 was used to support children’s educational needs through individual & group support or through resources purchased. Here is an evaluation of our pupil premium programme and its impact for 2016-17.

The premium for 2017-18 is £42,700.  Some of the funding will be used to employ an intevention HLTA who will work in the classroom, or with groups of children with disadvantage or SEND.  This includes running Read, Write, Inc for EYFS-Y2 and bespoke interventions for 6 pupils.   

The premium supports other intervention programmes, run either before school or during lessons for children in all year groups.  These are offered to any child who we feel will benefit from that extra input. We run booster classes after school for 10 weeks in the spring term for year 6 pupils to prepare them for tests later in the year.  

Parents of children with pupil premium funding will be offered financial support with educational visits, as needs arise.
