Mrs P M A Tonge
"To live, love and learn in the footprints of Jesus."
We have a very happy school community and a fantastic team of children, parents, staff and governors who will always welcome you and make you feel part of our family. Although our school is smaller than average, with around 120 children from 3 to 11, we have big ideas!
We know that each child is special and we provide plenty of opportunities for every child to excel.
Please come and see for yourself - we welcome visitors and we are sure that you will like what you see!
Ofsted 2015 states that St Norbert's school is a very calm, friendly environment where pupils feel safe and happy. Pupils’ personal development, including their behaviour, is outstanding. They value learning and always try their best. As a result, they achieve well.
The school takes excellent care of all pupils. It promotes highly principled values of honesty, trust and the right to be respected and to respect others. Pupils act accordingly in their daily lives and are excellent ambassadors for the school.
WELL DONE ST NORBERT'S!
Science Week Spring 2018
What a fantastic Science Week! Speakers from British Steel and Cemex opened the week, each class enjoyed a STEM day and a wonderful exhibition of our pupils' work on Friday-open to the public- brought the week to a close. Stuart from STEM provided an interesting insight for parents regarding his role in school and brought some excitement to the proceedings with his scientific engineering hands-on display! It was lovely to welcome one of our ex-pupils, Nicholas White from British Steel who was a great role-model for our pupils interested in a career in engineering. Thanks to everyone for attending and for some great reviews of the day!
Speech and Drama March 2018
Congratulations to the huge number of pupils who took part in the Speech and Drama Festival. More children than ever took part with many trophies, certificates and two bursaries being won ! Our KS1 children won first prize and a shield which is on display in the school entrance hall. Our KS2 Choral speaking group was the largest ever, with 45 children participating. Excellent work and second prize!
We are delighted that our school is reaccredited until 31 August 2020 with an International School Award
"Saint Norbert’s Catholic Academy has embedded education within its curriculum and ethos and you have presented a good range of international activities. This application meets the criteria for accreditation, congratulations! The school has a successful international partnership with a school in Lesotho and the pupils have been given the opportunity to complete a wide range of activities that allow them to discuss issues, including reducing one’s carbon footprint and water use. The partnership with Lesotho has also allowed some impressive work on reducing the problems caused by wood smoke.
Well done to all who have helped us in any way on our journey!
