At Norton Canes High School we are proud of our inclusive environment where all students are fully supported. Our intention is to provide a curriculum promoting resilience, independence and a thirst for lifelong learning in all our students. We are particularly proud that Staffordshire County Council has found our school worthy of hosting their resource centre for students with autism.

Staffordshire County Council has a clear vision that we want to make real for the whole county – a Connected Staffordshire, where everyone has the opportunity to prosper, be healthy and happy. In our strategy Achieving Excellence in Learning and Skills 2014-2016 we have set out our strategic approach to ensure that every child or young person in our area gets the good standard of education that is essential as a foundation to living a healthy, happy and prosperous life.
Every child deserves a good education. The right foundation of learning and skills is vital for our young people. It will help them access good jobs and live healthier, happier and independent lives.
We have created a learning infrastructure framework. It aims to set out how those who provide childcare or education can work together. We will make best use of the time and money we have. We will offer families choice in first class education and childcare, close to home, when they need it.
