School Aims


These are set within the context of the School as a Church of England School.

  • We aim to nurture respect for Religious and moral values, and to promote an awareness, understanding and tolerance for other races, religions and ways of life.
  • We seek to create an ethos of happiness and caring within the school and encourage a love of learning and develop each child's full potential by having a high expectancy for each of them.
  • We aim to provide all pupils with a broad and balanced curriculum which addresses the needs of each individual child.
  • We aim to provide a wide range of experience, to stimulate the children's interests and imagination and fully extend pupils of all abilities by recognising their individual gifts and talents.
  • We aim to encourage parents, teachers and the community to ensure the all-round development of each child and to encourage children to make a contribution to the school and local community.
  • We aim to have a well ordered school where self discipline, respect for people and property, tolerance and good manners are encouraged and rewarded.
  • We aim to help pupils use language and number effectively and with confidence. To develop enquiring minds, to persevere in solving problems and to appreciate human achievements and aspirations in music, art, science, technology, literature, religion and sport.
  • We aim to ensure continuity in the children's education by having positive liaison with the schools in the Berwick Partnership.
  • We want all children to achieve success and to experience the pleasure that comes from doing their best.



Norham School is "an outstanding school of which parents and staff are exceedingly proud." OFSTED 2010.


We believe that our school is a happy school where learning is fun. Children of all abilities do well because of the support they get from all the staff and from each other. All children are taught by each member of staff during the week so they are well known to staff.


"Care, guidance and support are outstanding in this family-like environment." OFSTED 2010.
