Every child matters at Norton Primary and we are committed to ensuring that all children are given the best possible opportunity to meet their full potential. Staff are dedicated to understanding the individual needs and interests of each pupil and through ongoing assessment we very closely monitor progress. Through using robust and detailed assessment we are quickly able to identify children who may need additional support
There is good provision for pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities and other vulnerable pupils and they are fully included in all that the school offers. They are well supported by skilled teaching assistants.

Our SENCo (Hayley Smith) works very closely alongside staff and leadership to monitor the provision and progress of children on the SEND register. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Smith within school.
September 2014 saw significant changes to SEN provision, making sure that children and young people with SEND are placed firmly at the centre of provision and decision making along with their families. At Norton Primary Academy we have fully embraced these changes and work hard to continue to develop our SEND provision. If you were unable to attend our SEND update afternoon and would like further information regarding these changes please visit the website below:
