We currently run both a breakfast club and an after school club, providing child care beyond the school day.
Children can arrive from 8:00am and can be collected up to 6:00pm. Further information is provided in this leaflet.
Beginning in January 2013, with the commissioning of our state-of-the-art kitchen, we took over direct management of all our catering. If you would like to know more about our school meals, morning break service (KS2) or if you have any suggestions on how we can improve our provision, please let us know.
The cost of school meals is £1.40/day and has been subsidised by the school since September 2014.
If you prefer to send your child with a packed lunch, there are some great ideas in this article; Loveable Luncboxes.
As a Community Primary School all our full time admissions are agreed with North Yorkshire County Council. Our Maximum Admission Limit is 90. Please click on the above link to make an application.
The Early Years Foundation Stage provides places for both full-time and part-time education. All three and four year olds in England are currently entitled to the Universal 15 hour entitlement per week for 38 weeks of the year.
From September 2017 the current funded childcare entitlement for three and four year olds is being increased from 15 to 30 hours per week for working parents. This change is to support working parents with the affordability of childcare and enable parents who want to work more hours, to do so. For more information and the eligibility criteria for the extended 30-hour entitlement, please read this letter.
From September 2017, the main intake into our Nursery provision (three and four Year olds) for the Universal 15-hour entitlement and the extended 30-hour entitlement is the September following the child's third birthday.
Entitlement hours (Universal 15-hour and the extended 30-hour) are available between 9am and 3pm, Monday to Friday at Norton C P School. Any families requiring additional hours, including Breakfast or After-School club, should enquire via the school office. Additional hours are subject to availability and additional charges.
Families may choose to split the hours between different settings or child-care providers.
Please contact the school office for more information or to make an admissions enquiry.
Schools in England are required to teach the National Curriculum through programmes of study based on those set out by Government and then specifically tailored to the needs of the children.
At Norton C P School, learning is fun, stimulating and purposeful for every child. Teaching is based around a “hooks and books” approach, whereby interest is sparked through high-quality texts (stories, videos, websites, etc.). Learning in different subject areas is then linked to create a dynamic, enjoyable and rigorous curriculum. Read more in our school curriculum statement.
Our school curriculum has been designed on these principles and is available for parents to download and read. Please see the PDF documents shown in the next panel.
We periodically review and update a wide range of school policies. They are used to ensure that all of us know what we expect of each other. Here are links to download PDF versions of policies that we think will be useful to parents:
Admission, Anti-bullying, Attendance, Behaviour, Charging and Remissions, Child Protection, Complaints Procedure, Data Protection, First Aid / Medication, Homework, Medical, Privacy Notice, SEND Policy and our Single Equality Scheme.
If you would like more information, please get in touch.
We have a detailed set of policies and procedures to assist children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), and their parents, carers and families
First and foremost is our school SEND Policy.
All of the above are used to determine the provision we need to make for each year group. Here are our provision maps for: Foundation Stage 1, Foundation Stage 2, Key Stage 1, Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6.
