About Norbury School
Norbury school opened its doors on September 1973. It takes children from 3 to 11 years of age. There are up to 90 children in three classes, in each year group. Our Nursery class is limited to 52 children; half attend the morning and the other half the afternoon session.
Our website is designed to give you a glimpse of our school and is packed with information that you as parents and carers will need to know. Our website has information on all the aspects of our school including Safeguarding, admissions criteria, times of the school day, school curriculum, school uniform, school clubs.
At Norbury, we have a strong vision which forms a fundamental part of how we move the school forward. Our school has a very dedicated team of staff who work exceptionally hard to ensure each child achieves their best, they are fully supported by the members of our Governing Body.
We believe that young children learn best when they are stimulated by an exciting and challenging curriculum which motivates them to learn. We actively encourage children to be inquisitive about the world around them and we celebrate every child’s success. Our aim is to create a lifelong love of learning in every child in an environment where every child can flourish academically, socially and emotionally in a welcoming atmosphere and provides a safe, secure and stimulating environment where children can enjoy their learning and thrive.
We have high expectations of all our children both in terms of behaviour and learning.
Our core offer at Norbury is:
- We value all in our community equally.
We are proud to be a world in school learning together.
By being respectful, exercising our rights and fulfilling our responsibilities we are:
- Keeping ourselves safe.
- Continuing learning.
- Allowing others to learn.
- Expecting excellence of ourselves & others.
- Making choices to be model citizens of the world.
Our Learning Charter demonstrates our pupils are central in their learning, as the Charter was created by them, and staff.
- All learners have the right to learn, be valued and listened to.
- All learners have the responsibility to allow themselves and others to learn, be valued and listened to.
- All learners respect the rights and responsibility of themselves and others to learn, be valued and listened to.
At Norbury we like to learn by:
- Having a go first and then talking about what we have found out.
- Linking previous learning to new skills and making links across subjects and year groups.
We enjoy the opportunities to ‘think, pair, share’.
We prefer questions which mean we have to consider facts, opinion, debate and explore to find answers.
We want thinking time and for all of us to participate in learning.
We accept that learning is a journey which never ends, though has many twists and turns.
There is an art room, performing arts studio, school library, ICT suite and much more. Our magnificent hall is used for assemblies, music, dance, drama and physical education, for which it is well equipped for. Our much loved school lunches are cooked on site, which are made from fresh ingredients and eaten in our large hall.
