'To Live, Love and Learn in the footprints of Jesus'
How can we try to live our mission statement?
Rights Respecting School
We have achieved the 'Rights Respecting School Award' Level 2 - the highest level awarded. Congratulations and thanks to all those who worked hard to achieve this award - well done! We continue to work for and promote children's rights locally, nationally and throughout the world. If you would like to help us, please let us know!
Do you know about the United Nations' Convention on the Rights of the Child?
Human rights are founded on the respect for the dignity and worth of each individual, regardless of race, gender, language, religion, opinions, wealth or ability and therefore apply to every human being everywhere.
The Convention is the only international human rights treaty which sets out in detail what every child needs to have for a safe, happy and fulfilled childhood.
Children still die from easily preventable causes, still lack protection, education, food, shelter and clean water, and still die of poverty and discrimination. Much remains to be done.
We, at St Norbert's, will do all that we can to promote children's rights. Our policies are based on and incorporate children's rights. We are spreading this information so that everyone knows and can support children everywhere.
For more information, please contact us. Also see Global Community page.
Fair Trade is promoted through our Fair Trade stall, held each term. The date of our next stall will be confirmed.
Connecting Communities Worldwide
We are a Connecting Communities Worldwide School and Malealea - in Southern Africa - is our link. Ken Dunn promotes this venture. Our most recent visit to Africa took place in October 2017. Please ring for further details.
We have gratefully received a grant from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). We will be using this grant to provide an engineering club later in the year working towards a joint project. Once completed, this project will be celebrated at an exhibition with the other schools in the community. The Engineering Education Grant Scheme (EEGS), which is run by the Institution of Engineering and Technology and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, aims to engage young people aged 5-19 in learning about engineering and to develop the professional skills of those involved in supporting Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) learning and careers awareness. The EEGS also supports projects that improve wider engineering literacy. The Engineering Education Grant Scheme (EEGS) provides support for UK-based educational projects that increase engineering knowledge in young people.
Please approach Mrs Tonge - in confidence - if you are in need of support, whether financial or otherwise.
