Welcome to our Rights Respecting School Council
Our Rights Respecting Council work very hard on our behalf to promote the work of our school. More information on who they are and what they do can be found on our homepage and also via the Rights Respecting School link on the right hand side of this page.
Examples of Events the Rights Respecting School Council have arranged
As part of our pledge to support charities across the year who make a difference to the lives of people all around the world, as well as in our country, we took part in Jeans for Genes day.
The children came to school wearing their genes or something blue, donating £1 for this amazing charity to raise money to make a difference for children affected by genetic disorders.
We would like to thank you all for your amazing support once again after raising a whopping £97.20! 🙂
Huge thank you to all of your fantastic donations to this amazing charity helping children with Genetic Disorders! This links closely to the work we do within the community as a Rights Respecting School:
UNCRC Article 23: A child with a disability has the right to live a full and decent life with dignity and independence, and to play an active part in the community.
1 in 25 children has a genetic disorder that makes their life very difficult. That’s like one in every class. By wearing our jeans and donating, we have helped to change the lives of these children.
We are overwhelmed with all of the donations and have received a grand total of £95.06!
Rights Respecting Energy Savers
The Rights Respecting Council have been working with Alice from the OASES and Mrs Gallacher, to find ways to improve our schools energy efficiency levels.
Today, Friday 9th March 2018, the Rights Respecting Council held a Fairtrade tuck shop in keeping with ‘Fairtrade Fortnight’. The Fairtrade tuck shop offered a Fairtrade KitKat and a drink of juice for 50p. Amongst the hustle and bustle in the hall we managed to squeeze in a DVD.
A few of the Rights Respecting Council members even tried their hand at washing up plastic cups in aid of recycling!
In Miss Grant’s Theme assembly this week we looked at how to keep ourselves safe when using the internet and our electronic devices. We found out how to stay SMART when using the internet and watched an interesting video showing how important it is to keep your personal information safe when playing on your electronic devices because the people that you are chatting to aren’t always who you think they might be (For more information see the power point attached below). Our Internet Safety work will be continued on Friday 9th February 2018 at our Fair trade Coffee Morning that is taking place in the School Hall between 10-11am, it would be great to see parents, carers and members of the community promoting E-Safety with us too!

UNCRC Article 6- Children have the right to live. Governments should ensure that children survive and develop healthy.
Well done Years 5/6 in conjunction with the Rights Respecting Council, who completed a sleepover at school to raise money for Crisis- a charity in aid to help the homeless, who the children value and want to help. We managed to raise £50 by running a soup kitchen, designing an outfit and building a shelter- Lizzie also came to visit us and we also managed to celebrate Harvey’s birthday.
