As a school we are very pleased to have been awarded status as a Rights Respecting School in July 2016. The award stems from our work which has successfully embedded the Convention of the Rights of the Child (CRC) into the heart of everything we do. Our aim is to both empower our children to respect the rights and opportunities they have and to become responsible global citizens supporting the rights of children across the world.
In our endeavours to achieve this award our children have been learning about the rights of the child and the impact it has on their lives. They and we have been making links to our learning, especially in RE, topic work and PSHE, and taking time to reflect on how we can help others. We have created charters to support positive choices and respect for others and have also been fundraising to support children around the world.
Mr. Tranter's visit to Gambia in October 2016, has furthered our support for children in the wider world as we hope each year group will sponsor a child in Gambia to attend school. We also hope to sponsor a Trainee Teacher through their training to enable them to teach in the school Mr. Tranter visited in October. The Rights of the Child are important to us and so we work to embed these rights across all areas of school life hopefully achieving level 2 within the next two years.
