Safe School Ambassadors
The Safe School Ambassadors look after and take care of children. While the School Council improves our school, we take care of it.
We try to make sure that St Norbert’s is a place of happy times and memories.
If you are upset, we try to help.
The Safe School Ambassadors operate a Good Buddy rota system to support any child who might feel lonely at break times. If friends have fallen out, a Good Buddy can be there to help.
We carry out termly questionnaires to find out the views of all pupils. If there are any concerns, the team work out ways to resolve them.
We are glad to say that all the pupils feel happy in our school.
The Safe School Ambassadors attend Safe School Meetings throughout North Lincolnshire, together with their Safe School Mentor (Mrs Mell). This enables us to share good practice with children from other schools.
We have a weekly assembly during which Mrs Tonge reminds all of the children about how to keep themselves and others safe.
We remind all children again that it is fine to say ‘no!’ if you are asked to do something that causes concern or doesn’t feel right.
Rights Respecting School
We are a gold rights respecting school… again!
Children’s rights 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 have 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.
To live life to the full, achieving the fulfillment of potential (spiritual, intellectual, physical, psychological, social, moral and aesthetic and religious capacities of each child).
To love and serve others by developing a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, a communal transparent witness to the Gospel message of the love of God and neighbour, especially the poor and marginalized.
To learn through a commitment to academic excellence, relevant cross-curricular religious education and faith formation programmes, educating and engaging the whole child in all dimensions.
