Rights Respecting School
We are pleased to have achieved our UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools Award - Silver: Rights Aware
In order to achieve the award, we were assessed against a set of criteria that reflected how we respect the rights of pupils not only in our school, but also in the community and around the world.
Strand A: Teaching and Learning About Rights
The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) is made known to children and adults who use this shared understanding to work for improved child well-being, school improvement, global justice and sustainable living.
Strand B: Teaching and Learning Through Rights - Ethos and Relationships
Actions and decisions affecting children are rooted, reviewed and resolved through rights. Children, young people and adults collaborate to develop and maintain a school community based on equality, dignity, respect, non-discrimination and participation; this includes learning and teaching in a way that respects the rights of both educators and learners and promotes well-being.
Strand C: Teaching and Learning for Rights - Participation, Empowerment and Action
Children are empowered to enjoy and exercise their rights and to promote the rights of others locally and globally. Duty bearers are accountable for ensuring that children experience their rights.
The pupils in all classes have contributed to a ‘Class Charter’ that links to the 'United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child' and these charters are referred to regularly, helping us to respect each other's rights in school.
Please see some examples of class charters from across the school below:
