Welcome

At Norton St Philip First School we do things a little bit differently! We have created a unique learning environment within the heart of the countryside, with small classes and big learners! New children and their families are warmly welcomed into our friendly community where every member of staff knows every child.

 
We hope you will find our web site interesting and informative but if you have any further questions about Norton St Philip School, please don't hesitate to ask on our enquiry page, by e-mailing us, dropping us a line or by calling in anytime. We will always welcome the opportunity to show you around, as every day is an Open Day at Norton St Philip CofE First School.
We love being part of our School and always strive for the very best for all the children in our care. We hope you will come and share our learning adventure.

​Hands On, Brains On

Hands-on learning opportunities are central to the varied exciting projects devised by our dynamic staff. Our school is home to the pioneering Story Walk project, which enables children to create digital story trails using GPS.

 

Norton St Philip First School’s particular love of music, art and drama combine in the fantastic shows that staff and students create together and perform for parents in local theatres. Learning regularly decamps to our Forest School and one of our most recent innovations are ‘Explorer Walks’ around the village, teaching children mapping and hiking skills.

Small School, Thinking Big

Children can start their learning adventure in the on-site privately run Outstanding Pre-school. Our youngest class is located alongside the Preschool in the Garden Room. These youngsters are able to enjoy play-based learning both indoors and out with a covered terrace and a wrap- around garden. Take tea in the Playhouse, and wave to the horses and sheep in the next field!

 
Our older children are based in the beautiful Victorian main building, upstairs in the Treehouse. This large loft classroom has an airy feel and both classrooms have state of the art interactive white boards, MacBook Pro laptops and iPads.

 
Outside our children play and learn on our spacious playing field, which is home to our thriving vegetable garden complete with polytunnel; our forest school; the adventure trail, and the quiet area.

 
Where will your learning adventure take You today?

MAGICAL MARVELLOUS MAKERY, WONKA CHALLENGE, NOVEMBER 2016

Rode & Norton St Philip children enthusiastically accepted our Wonka Challenge to become entrepreneurs for a month.  Each class was given a crisp £20 note from either FORS or NSP PTFA and their task was to make as much profit as they could before the end of November.  The winning class would then decide how to spend the total profit raised by both schools!
 
The children created beautiful wrapping paper, decorations, key-chains, calendars, placemats and decorated plates which were all snapped up by happy customers. The amazing total profit was a fantastic £889.95!!! The winning class, by £45 was Pink Panthers Class, This was a truly extraordinary effort by all and huge congratulations must go to all the children and staff for being so brilliant and to FORS, NSP PTFA and all our customers, for being so supportive.
