Extremely Random Reading

Check out all of the extremely random places we have been reading this week …
Thank you to all the children and staff who took part.


Across all schools in the Trust we are looking ahead to when we can extend the current provision and welcome more of our students back, in line with the current Government plans. 

This will be bespoke, taking into account the needs of and numbers of students in each of our schools, their families and the wider community.

Our staff are already carrying out work within our schools to make them as safe as we can, looking at every aspect of school life from how we might work in small groups to where we eat lunch. In other words what a day in school will look and feel like in the weeks to come as we extend our provision.

Keeping the risks low, manageable and safeguarding the health and wellbeing of students and staff is our key priority and always will be.

We promise to continue to keep you informed and up to date, but as always if you have any questions please do get in touch with your school. 

Below is a link to the Department for Education guidance for parents and carers about the reopening of schools from 1st June 2020. This may help answer some questions you may have if you have chosen to send your child back to school. Further details will follow over the next week for those who wish to return.


Extreme Reading

This week the theme for our NIS video is reading in unusual or extreme places.
So make sure you send us in your photographs of you reading in a strange place … on your slide? In a paddling pool? Which bizarre places can you think of to read?
Send your photos to parents@norton-inf.uk before the end of Thursday – we have had some brilliant ones already!
Happy Reading

VE Day 75

Thank you to all of our children, families and staff who shared their photographs this week.

Today we honour all those servicemen and women who served in the Second World War, and the sacrifices made.

To those who gave so much, Norton Infant School thanks you.


On the 8th May 2020 it will be 75 years since the guns fell silent at the end of the war in Europe.  It will be an opportunity for us all to remember the enormous sacrifices that were made at home and abroad and to joyously celebrate as people did 75 years ago, the arrival of peace in Europe.

In commemoration of this the school is celebrating the day by asking you to send us a photograph of what your child has been doing in preparation for VE day at home.  For example maybe a VE day themed drawing, flag making, dressing up in a red, white or blue theme, making bunting or if the weather is nice having a picnic lunch or afternoon tea in the garden.


We have put lots of links, activities and videos on our home learning site if you need some inspiration.

If we could have your photos by the latest Wednesday 6 May to parents@norton-inf.uk

Thank you for your continued support.

We miss you …

We all miss so much about not being together at school everyday – so here is a little video from our children telling you about just what a special place our school is and what they are missing the most.

Thank you so much to all the families who helped us with this.
