We are proud to be a Rights Respecting School!
As a Rights Respecting School, we put the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) at the heart of our ethos and curriculum. We aim to improve well-being and develop every child’s talents and abilities to their full potential. The UNCRC is made up of 42 articles which outline the civil, political, social, economic and cultural rights of children. These are the rights that every child should have, regardless of where they are in the world.
UNIVERSAL: Rights are for ALL children
INHERENT: Rights are there at BIRTH
INALIENABLE: Rights CANNOT be taken away
UNCONDITIONAL: Rights DO NOT have to be earnt
INDIVISIBLE: All rights are EQUALLY important
Our Right of the Month for November is:
Article 19 – The right not to be harmed and to be looked after and kept safe.
In class and in our assemblies, we will be looking at how we are kept safe in school. We will reflect on our class charters and discuss the importance of hand-washing and social distancing. We will be discussing how we can keep each other safe outside of school for example on Bonfire Night.
