Spiritual education of children at the school

Please forward this error screen to sharedip-10718039237. Our spiritual education of children at the school teachers work to ensure every child is supported by both cherishing and challenging them to fulfil their potential, and to experience the joy and satisfaction that this brings.

Sports activities, music lessons, forest school and a range of after-school clubs supplement and enrich our curriculum. We encourage our pupils to discover their passions, and aim to provide all our pupils with the necessary support to nurture their individual talents. The children are at the centre of everything we do at Norton-in-Hales School. Having a sense of participation, ownership and involvement is of the upmost importance. They are actively involved in the decision-making process and are encouraged to participate on the School Council, in the planning and delivery of assemblies and annual productions, and proudly represent the school at a number of sporting events.

We hope that our website has given you a flavour of Norton-in-Hales Primary School, as well as useful information, however it is no substitute for a visit. 1 Mar Hi all, apologies but Forest School is cancelled tomorrow for class 2 because of the extreme weather. 18 Jun 2017 Good evening all, we hope you have had a lovely weekend in this glorious sunshine! 13 Jun 2017 Well done Team Norton. 211 at the Village Festival yesterday!

Waldorf education, also known as Steiner education, is based on the educational philosophy of Rudolf Steiner, the founder of anthroposophy. The first Waldorf school opened in 1919 in Stuttgart, Germany. The first school based upon Steiner’s ideas was opened in 1919 in response to a request by Emil Molt, the owner and managing director of the Waldorf-Astoria Cigarette Company in Stuttgart, Germany, to serve the children of employees of the factory.

This is the source of the name Waldorf, which is now trademarked in some countries in association with the method. The Stuttgart school grew rapidly and soon the majority of pupils were from families not connected directly with the company. Waldorf education became more widely known in Britain in 1922 through lectures Steiner gave on education at a conference at Oxford University. After the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Waldorf schools began to proliferate in Central and Eastern Europe. Most recently, many schools have opened in Asia, especially in China.
