Recovery Statement

At St Norbert’s, personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) education enables our children to become healthy, independent and responsible members of a society. It aims to help them understand how they are developing personally and socially, and tackles many of the moral, social and cultural issues that are part of growing up.

Now more than ever, PSHE education will be crucial to the well-being of students in our school. Through PSHE promotions and development of interactions with all pupils will be crucial based on mutual respect, care, empathy, and warmth; avoiding negative emotions when interacting with pupils; being sensitive to individual needs, emotions, culture and beliefs of individuals.  Pupil-pupil relationships will be supported and characterised by respect, trust, co-operation, and care through the monthly values.

Questioning will be crucial in developing positive dialogue and connected flexible thinking amongst learners. This will enable then to deeper understand their own ideas and those of others.

Children will be provided with opportunities for them to learn about rights and responsibilities and appreciate what it means to be a member of a diverse society.

A key part of our plan for education is to ensure children become valuable and fully rounded members of society who treat others with respect and tolerance, regardless of background. This ensures young people understand the importance
