We are a GOLD RiGHTS RESPECTING SCHOOL
Childrenrights are learned, understood and lived here at St Norbert's!
We hold regular meetings to make sure that every child's needs are met in our school:
We made new Class and Dining Hall charters in September and made extra charters for playground and corridor too. We have lots of lessons about Children's Rights, School Assemblies and Class Assemblies. At Harvest we promoted the Food Bank and UNICEF appeal to parents and visitors and Article 24: every child has the right to the best possible health and nutritious food; Article 6 states that everyone has the right to live and governments must do all they can. We raised lots of money!
We encourage children to learn their 'birthday right'. Mrs Tonge's birthday right is :You have the right to education!
We also look after the needs of children in our country and in the rest of the world. We have discussed a few times with our MP, Mr Andrew Percy about what the Government are doing to help the refugee crisis and getting children's rights met. He promised to take our views to Government. We have led some conferences as Ambassadors and invited a few different schools to learn more about the UNCRC.
We held a Rights Respecting Conference Day last year and plan another this summer. Our previous ones hacve been a great success and several schools have attended. Everyone learned a lot from each other and made new friends too. Mrs Tonge said that the feedback from everyone was wonderful and more schools in North Lincolnshire will soon start the journey to become RIghts Respecting Schools.
