Parents in Partnership
Parents in Partnership Meetings
Working together with families is crucial to the success of our work at Norbury. We hold 'Parents in Partnership' meetings to share key messages with parents about the work of our school, school development, priorities and initiatives.
We hold regular 'Parents in Partnership' meetings for parents and share key information via our school dojo story for those unable to attend.

In June 2023, parents of children with special educational needs and disabilities from across the school (SEND) were invited to a session with Mr Steve Bembridge, the Special Needs Co-ordinator from Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School.

On Safer Internet Day, February 2023, we met to share key messages around online safety. We were supported by our IT techinican, James Hartle, and families were given the opportunity to ask their own questions about supporting online safety at home. Many thanks to those families who attended.
This presentation was shared with families:
ey messages given included;
- the importance of screen free time
