Rights Respecting School
We are immensely proud to be a UNICEF Rights Respecting School level 2.
UNCRC Article 12– Children have the right to say what they think should happen when adults are makingdecisions that affect them, and to havetheir opinions taken in to account.
As a Rights Respecting school we are an organisationwhich promotes equality and the UNCRC articles giving children in our care a high level of pupil voice and participation as well as striving to educate them to become all round Global citizens.
We are also a Rights Respecting Ambassador School, where we work with other schools to help promote and achieve Rights Respecting Schools Award
A large part of this work is the creation of Charters – agreements between the children and adults in school about what actions both groups will take to help promote the UNCRC articles.
Groups of children in a class will choose an article that they feel is important to them and think about what actions they as children can take to help themselves and others globally to make that article work.
Adults in school will think about what actions they can take to do the same. Together, class, whole school and playground charters are created which helps to make our school a thoughtful, reflective place to learn, work and play.
We are due our re-accreditation assessment on Tue 2ndOctober
