Information about this school

Norbury Primary School and Nursery is considerably smaller than the average-sized primary school.

The very large majority of pupils are White British. The percentage of disadvantaged pupils who are supported through the pupil premium (which provides additional funding for students in local authority care and those previously known to be eligible for free school meals) is well below the national average and represents a very small minority. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is, at 23% above average.

The school meets current government floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress. Pupils are taught in three mixed-age classes, one of which is taught by the headteacher. From 1 September 2014, children in the full time Nursery and Reception classes are being taught together in an Early Years Foundation Stage.

The school runs a range of after-school clubs. In recent years a high proportion of pupils have joined the school part way through their education. Since 1 October 2014 the school has been a member of a foundation trust, the South West Shropshire Learning Trust.
