        WE ARE a Rights Respecting School.

We have a number of Year 5 and 6 children who are our Rights Respecting Champions. They are actively involved in both promoting this and helping us towards achieving the Silver Award. The principles of this are embedded in our curriculum and seen in the school's ethos. 

Being a 'Rights Respecting School' gives children the opportunity to challenge injustices for other children. Many of the school’s projects, for instance, ‘Should water be Free?,' ‘Natural disasters, who cares?,‘What is the Eighth Wonder of the world?', 'How cruel is Mother Nature?' and 'Do all children have a voice across the world?’ enable our children to not only explore injustice but also to make a difference.  

 

Why the Rights Respecting School Award? 

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) is based on an analysis of what children need in order to thrive. These needs are grouped into four categories:

  • To survive as a fit and healthy person
  • To be protected from harm and abuse
  • To develop physically, mentally and socially
  • To participate as an active citizen

 

UNICEF UK's Rights Respecting School award is based on principles of equality, dignity, respect, non-discrimination and participation. Our commitment to developing this as a whole school policy can be seen in the school’s ethos and culture. We aim to ensure that the principles of this are at the heart of our school's practice in order to improve wellbeing and help all children realise their potential.
