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. We are continuing to embed the rights of the child into all aspects of school life.
