As a Silver Rights Respecting school, we are always learning about our rights. The following are fantastic examples of our class charters, which the duty bearers and rights holders have signed. Remember a duty bearer is an adult over the age of 18 and a rights holder is anyone under the age of 18. We all have an important job to do in ensuring all children’s rights are being met and the class charters are a fantastic way of reminding us all of our responsibilities.
Why the Rights Respecting School Award?The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) is based on an analysis of what children need in order to thrive. These needs can be grouped into four categories:
- To survive as a fit and healthy person
- To be protected from harm and abuse
- To develop physically, mentally and socially
- To participate as an active citizen
- We have made the children familiar with the Rights that all children have from birth.
- We have completed a range of assemblies linked to different Articles within the Convention for Children’s rights
- We have committed to developing our understanding of Rights Respecting and how this can influence what we do as a school, day to day.
- We have completed an Action Plan to get ourselves to Silver.
