The History of Norton Road.
Norton Road Primary School has been successfully educating children from the local area for more than one hundred years. The school began its life serving the Village of Leagrave in 1913, some of the parents would have worked on farms, others in industry. Today we are a part of a thriving 21st century, urban, multi-cultural community. One of our strengths being the wide variety of heritages our pupils, parents and staff bring to the school.
The school still stands in a community that has historically pulled together extremely well, going through both world wars and still serving proudly today. Air raid shelters from World War Two still exist and lie under the car park, for example.
At Norton Road the school is not about the building, but about the young people who join our community and the adults who guide them on their way. We aim to foster capacity for self- improvement , resilience, and the skills, concepts and knowledge to thrive in the 21st century. Our mission is literally about enabling our children to achieve – in life as a whole, and for the whole of their life.
