We believe at Norbury that children and young people learn more effectively and have better academic outcomes if they are happy in their work, believe in themselves and feel acknowledged and supported in their schools.

National and international research highlights that the well-being of our children and young people is critical to their success in education and in life.

Well-being education occurs throughout life and in a variety of settings. Promoting the well-being of our children and young people is a shared community responsibility and is everybody’s business. While many factors which influence well-being are located in the home, the school, situated within the community can be a powerful context for healthy development in enhancing protective factors and minimising risks. Schools play a key role in developing and enhancing young people’s well-being as they spend a large proportion of their time in school during their formative years.

At Norbury safeguarding & the Unicef Rights of the Child are central to all we do. We are an award winning Level 2 school & are proud of our Respect, Responsibility & Rights ethos. Norbury has mental health and well-being at the centre of its Rights Respecting ethos. As a Gold Unicef School we are proud of our community relationships, our solution focused supported and transformational results.

We have decided to embark on the exciting journey of working towards The Well-being Award for Schools as a way of recognizing the work we already do, as well as all the other initiatives that we plan to put in place, to promote and embed emotional well-being and positive mental health through a whole school approach.

The Well-being Award for Schools is intended to celebrate the work that schools do to prepare and equip themselves to promote emotional, social well-being and positive mental health across the whole school community.
