Personal Development at Norbridge Academy

At Norbridge Primary Academy, we promote Personal Development as a whole-school approach to underpin children’s holistic development and self-growth.

There are many avenues throughout the school which drive our personal development forward:

  • Our Core Values
  • The Norbridge Pact
  • Relationship, Sex and Health Education
  • British Values
  • SMSC(Spiritual, Moral, Social, Cultural)
  • Religious Education & Physical Education
  • ELSA
  • Trips and Visitors

Our Core Values

At Norbridge Primary Academy we believe the personal development of our students is crucial to ensure our children are equipped with life skills to progress through primary school, secondary school and into adult life. Therefore, we have six core values that underpin our personal development. These are:

  • Courage
  • Determination
  • Honesty
  • Humility
  • Kindness
  • Reliability

In turn, the children will then endeavour to complete the Norbridge Pact, which will help develop their own personal growth along with helping other children in their class, peers in school and their local community.

The Norbridge Pact is a set of aims for our children to aspire to achieve during their time at Norbridge Academy:

  • Raise money for a charity
  • Take part in the Norbridge campout
  • Run at least 25 miles
  • Take part in an enterprise activity
  • Join a club
  • Have an attendance record of 95% or above
  • Represent Norbridge at an event
  • Take part in the Blogathon
  • Achieve at least one grade in Karate
  • Visit a museum or gallery
  • Graduate from the DAaRT programme
  • Receive a ‘Special Mention’ or ‘House Point Champion’ award
  • Learn how to play an instrument
  • Earn a British Gymnastics badge
  • Uphold the school values at all times


The Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) development of our students has always been at the heart of the education offered in Delta Academies.  Our Academies’ approach to SMSC is embedded in the Delta ethos of mutual respect, partnership working and collaboration; an approach that we believe is fundamental to our children’s personal development.

British Values

At Norbridge Primary Academy, we value the diverse ethnic backgrounds of all pupils and families and undertake a variety of events, assemblies and lessons to celebrate these. We have found this approach to be enriching for all parties as it teaches tolerance and respect for the differences in our community and the wider world. Underpinning all of this, is a range of curriculum topics, which have strong links to the British Empire.

On Friday 30th June children attended school dressed in the colours of the Pride Flag. This was then re-created on the school playground.

Family Liaison Officer & ELSA

Our mission is to improve children and young people’s lives by making safeguarding and mental health top of our agenda, which in turn supports children in being able to access the academic curriculum.  We believe that no child or young person should have to struggle in any way or face mental health problems or difficulties alone. Our Family Liaison Officer and ELSAs work passionately to support pupils to manage challenges in their lives, empowering them to be the best possible person they can be: happy, healthy and free from harm.

R.E. and P.E

Religious Education at Norbridge plays an important role in preparing pupils for adult life. It helps pupils to become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens. It is a thought-provoking subject that encourages children to respect their faith/life and the way that others choose to live theirs, so that their own personal, spiritual and moral development will be developed.

Physical Education at Norbridge is a great way to ensure children are developing a range of personal and social skills such as peer relationship skills, prosocial behaviours (e.g. respect), leadership skills, problem-solving skills, and personal and social responsibility skills.
