Rights Respecting Schools

Welcome to our Rights Respecting School page.

Becoming a Rights Respecting School means that we care about children’s rights and we try and make sure that all children get their rights at school.  We focus on the rights that are set out in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). You can read a summary of the UNCRC HERE.

We think it is important to understand and promote children’s rights because we want all children to use their rights fully.  We want to work to help children in our school and  all around the world to use their rights.

This page is written by us, the Rights Ambassadors.  We are a group of children from years 3,4.5 and 6 who are leading the school to become a Rights Respecting School.  Some of the things that we are doing are:  making posters to put around the school, running charity events, doing assemblies for children in school and meetings for parents.  Every half term we learn about a different right as a whole school.

This half term we are working on article 28 – all children have the right to education because it is very important that children go to school all over the world and we are very lucky to have the opportunity to go to school.  We want all children in our school to appreciate how important it is to go to school.  We have been talking in assemblies about children in other countries who don’t go to school.  It has made us realise how important school is and that everyone deserves a free education.
