We are delighted to announce that we are working towards becoming a UNICEF Rights Respecting School.
The Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) recognises achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) at the heart of a school’s planning, policies, practice and ethos.
A rights-respecting school not only teaches about children’s rights but also models rights and respect in all its relationships: between teachers / adults and pupils, between adults and between pupils.
It also helps our children understand and appreciate that we are global citizens living in a wider world with different communities and lifestyles.
The rights we have decided to really focus on this year are:
Article 12 - Right to respect the views of the child
Article 24 - Right to be healthy and safe
Article 28 - Right to an education
