P.E. and sport play an important role in the children’s education at Norton Primary School and is integrated in the school’s ethos. We strive to equip children with the skills and values to become excellent sportspeople.
This is achieved through the Norton Values of respect, determination, courage, inspiration, excellence, equality and friendship.
Well differentiated lessons encourage ALL children to have a love for being active and to play sport, as well as ensuring children develop essential life skills such as learning how to swim, ride a bike and how to lead healthy, active lifestyles.
Regular inter-house and inter-school tournaments develop strong, resilient and healthy attitudes towards playing competitive sport. Not only do children have the opportunity to take part in these events, but also the chance to become effective Sport Leaders through helping to organise and officiate tournaments.
We offer a wide variety of extra-curricular sports and have worked hard to develop strong links with the local community to encourage children to play sport outside of school, using coaches from local clubs to deliver taster sessions and take after-school clubs.
We encourage children to have a love for being active and playing sport as well as to develop essential life skills.
