Safeguarding in the Curriculum
Safeguarding our children is of paramount importance. We know that children must be happy and safe in order to learn effectively and fulfil their potential. At Norbury, safeguarding is an important thread which runs throughout the curriculum.
Here is some of our latest learning.
We delivered the NSPCC 'Speak Out, Stay Safe programme in class. This will be supported by visits from the NSPCC to Year 6 in early 2023.
See below for the parents information connected with our lessons.
We joined in with 'Anti-Bullying Week', exploring the theme of 'Reach Out'. Children enjoyed working with our resident artist Mrs Tebbs to explore story books related to bullying, friendship, tolerance and kindness. They put their ideas together to create a beautiful mural for school.
Coming soon to the front of the building!
The children also helped Mrs Wright to create a child friendly 'Anti-Bullying Policy'.
We participated in 'Safer Internet Day' with the theme of 'All Fun and Games'. Children learnt about how to recognise dangers online and take action to stay safe. They also recommended some of their favourite games to their classmates.
We would be delighted if you could join us in celebrating the day by continuing the conversation at home. To help you with this, you may be interested in downloading the free Safer Internet Day Resources for Parents andCarers which are available at: saferinternet.org.uk/sid-parents.
This includes top tips, quizzes,and films which you can use at home with your child.
Some other resources which you may find helpful in supportingyour child online are:
- Tips, advice and guides for parents and carers from the UK Safer Internet Centre (safer internet.org.uk/parents)
- Advice for parents and carers from Childnet (childnet.com/parents-and-carers)

- Help on using parental controls and privacy settings from Internet Matters (internet matters.org./controls)
- Information and reporting of online grooming or sexual abuse from CEOP (ceop.police.uk) The CEOP button is available on our website for the reporting of any concerns.
As always, if you have any concerns or questions about keeping your child safe online, please do get in touch with your child’sclass teacher.
We have been learning about positivity across the school and how a positive approach can help us to stay happy, well and encouraging each other. The children have been thinking about their 'ordinary magic', the daily things that make them happy.
Anthea from the Dog's Trust visited to teach us how to be respectful and careful with our four legged friends.
We learnt the five happy dog rules;
1. If a dog is resting, you should leave them alone.
2. If a dog is eating, you should leave them alone.
3. We should always stay quiet around dogs.
4. Dogs don't like hugs they prefer a gentle stroke.
5. If a dog takes your toy, tell an adult.
In the afternoon, as part of PSHE, the children talked about theimportance of rules and thought about other rules that we follow in our daily lives.
We joined in with Anti-Bullying Week with the theme of 'One Kind Word'. Lot's of kindness and empathy was shown and there was laughter too as the children participated in Odd Socks Day, celebrating the individuality of our school population.
