Norbury Manor Primary School


Vision and Values

Make Every Moment Count!

We aim to achieve excellence in all areas so that our children, regardless of their starting point, are enthusiastic, independent learners who view the world around them with enquiring minds and give them the resources to be ‘learners today and leaders tomorrow.’

We believe that children whose parents are involved and interested in their learning do well. We involve parents in their children’s learning and encourage them to be active members of the school community. Parent communication is organised to encourage wide participation and honest conversation. We expect all parents to support their children’s educational aspirations and achievements.


This is underpinned by our ‘RESPECT’ values which permeate all areas of school life.
