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 equip children with the skills and values to become excellent sportspeople
This is achieved through the School’s Norton Values: Respect, Determination, Courage and Friendship and the British Values: Liberty and Individuality, Democracy and Sharing, Respect and Tolerance, and Following Rules.
The school encourages children to have a love for being active and playing 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 ALL children to play sport outside of school, using coaches from local clubs to deliver taster sessions and take after-school clubs.
