Headteacher’s Welcome

I am delighted to welcome you to our website, and I hope that it will give you a flavour of what Norris Bank Primary is all about.

It is a pleasure for me to be the Headteacher of such a happy, friendly school with kind, caring, well-behaved pupils and a dedicated team of staff. We are all committed to working effectively with parents and governors to ensure all of the children have meaningful, exciting and challenging learning opportunities.

One of our many strengths is our continuous commitment to achieve the very best education for our children. All of which was recognised by Ofsted:

“Pupils benefit from an outstanding curriculum which inspires them and helps them develop a love for learning”

“Behaviour is outstanding in all aspects, and exemplary in class”

“Pupils enjoy learning and have exceptionally good relationships with their teachers”

We strongly value our partnership with parents and provide a variety of opportunities where parents can become involved with their child’s school life.

We are extremely proud that we are able to share our school with you via our website and hope that you gain a real ‘feel’ for our school. If you are new to the area and are looking for a new school for your child to attend, we would welcome the opportunity to show you around.

If you have children with us we hope that you find our website useful and that you are able to find all the information you need.

Please do not hesitate to contact the admin team at the school if you would like to visit. I would be delighted to show you our school and answer any specific questions you may have.

Mrs Elena Ponsen – Headteacher


Please be aware that due to some of our pupils having severe allergies we are a totally nut free school. Please remember we have children with other severe allergies too (milk/nuts/ egg). Please consider this when sending children in with food and reminding our children not to share snacks.

We also do not allow any smoking or vaping on the school grounds.

Thank you for your understanding.
