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.
In school the children have been learning about their rights and the United Nations Rights of a Child act.
