Unicef Rights Respecting School Award

The primary school is working towards the Unicef Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA).  Within this we attempt to put the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) at the heart of our school’s ethos and culture to improve well-being and develop every child’s potential. A rights respecting school is a community where children’s rights are learned, taught, practiced and promoted.

 

Through participation in the Award, children and adults in school learn about children’s rights by putting them into practice everyday. As a rights-respecting school, we aim to model rights and respect in all our relationships, whether between adults and children, between children, or between adults.

 

We have an RRSA Steering group made up of children, parents and teachers. The groups meet regularly to discuss different ways in which we can use the UNCRC within school. Examples include having a termly Article focus which is linked into curriculum planning and events happening in school. Our annual European Languages Day, for example links to Article 30 which states that

‘Every child has the right to learn and use the language, customs and religion of their family, regardless of whether these are shared by the majority of the people in the country where they live. ‘

Our ‘Golden Charter of Rights’ developed from the UNCRC guides children in rights respecting behaviour and the children can also receive ‘golden tickets’ for displaying this. We have held charity events such as the Unicef ‘’Day for Change and ‘Toe to Toe’ which link to articles of the Convention and we have incorporated learning on issues such as the refugee crisis and poverty into our curriculum.
