Together young people and our school community learn about children’s rights, putting them into practice every day. The Award is not just about what children do but also, importantly, what adults do. In Rights Respecting Schools children’s rights are promoted and realised, adults and children work towards this goal together.
Our school has adopted a child rights approach based on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and are embedding it in school policy, practice and culture. Children and adults in our school have understanding of child rights through learning in PSHE lessons (Personal, Social, Health) and assemblies. We use the language of rights and rights-respecting attitudes in all our curriculum work, which relates to children both in this country and abroad.
We are pleased to have already achieved the Bronze and Silver Award and our RRS team of children and staff are now working towards achieving the Gold Award.
We are proud to premier our Rights Respecting School Video:
In school the children have been learning about their rights and the United Nations Rights of a Child act. Each class have their own class right and during this video the children showcase what they have learnt about their class right. I am sure you will agree the children and staff that have helped put this video together truly SHINE!
Our School Song Video
To create our school song the Shining Lights from each class worked with the Knowsley Music team. They gathered ideas from their class and put these forward for the song to show that everyone in our school has a voice. We often used the British Value democracy to vote on key elements of the song such as the title.
We then worked with Knowsley CLCs to create a video that we thought reflected our school and the values that we as a community share and represent. We are proud to be individual and shine in our own special way, always showing respect and dignity for others.
