Respect is one of the core values of our school. This can be seen and felt in the ethos of our school. The pupils know and understand that it is expected, that respect is shown to everyone, whatever differences we may have.
The core value of respect at Norton Community Primary School is in our work every day both in and out of the classroom. This is also reflected in our Norton Values.
Respect is reinforced in daily collective worship and enrichment experiences. For example, children visit local care homes at Christmas to sing Christmas carols and collecting food at harvest to give to a local food bank. Each year the school council also vote for a charity they would like to donate to and any fundraising carried out (e.g. bake sales, summer fare, raffles etc.) in that year will go to the chosen charity or charities.
Our school is also committed to the Arch Bishop Youth Award where the children in Year 5 commit time to improve their local community and ‘Be the change they want to see’. As part of this award each child must carry out individual activities to support people in their local community and as a class make a significant change within the community. To date the children have raised over £1000 for the local church Bell Tower Appeal.
