Rights Respecting Schools 

 

We have been working towards our level 2 assessment for Rights Respecting Schools and are nearly ready!

Click here to read the Rights Respecting Schools Level 2 Booklet for parents - this is the booklet that was sent home during June with all of the children. If you havent had your copy download it from here. 

 What is a Rights Respecting School?

As part of our school’s aims to promote a happy and successful school, we are working towards recognition as a “Rights Respecting School”. This is an award which is given to schools on behalf of UNICEF.

UNICEF is the world’s leading organisation working for children and their rights. In 1989, governments worldwide promised all children the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). These rights are based on what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfil their potential.

The ‘Rights Respecting School’ award (RRSA) will help our pupils to grow into confident, caring and responsible young citizens both in school and within the wider community. By learning about their rights children also learn about the importance of respecting the rights of others i.e. their responsibilities.

Rights Ambassadors

Our Rights Ambassadors have done a great job in making sure all children and adults in our school know about children’s rights!

Our Super Ambassadors enjoyed meeting Sally Holland, Children’s Commissioner for Wales.
