Rights Respecting Group

What's it all about?

The 'Rights Respecting School Award' (RRSA) is an initiative run by UNICEF UK, which encourages schools to place the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) at the heart of its ethos and curriculum.  A Rights Respecting School not only teaches about children's rights, it also models rights and respect in all its relationships, whether between children or between children and adults.

Our Steering Group will lead, guide and inform the activities of the whole school so that we achieve the UNCIEF Rights Respecting Schools (RRS) Award and become a Rights Respecting School.  They will ensure that the whole school is aware of the Rights Respecting Schools Award. They will provide a link between children and young people, teachers, the senior leadership team, parents and the whole school community and will regularly feedback to the school community about our progress on our Rights Respecting Schools journey.

What are children's rights?
The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) tells everyone the rights of children and young people under the age of 18.

Rights Respecting Assembly

On Wednesday 21st June, The Rights Respecting Group put together a Collective Worship for the whole school. The focus of the collective worship was to show what we already know and our plans for the future. We played a game show called '5 Gold Rings', the objective was to answer five questions about the UN convention of the rights of a child. If they were successful every child would receive an extra playtime. The school overcame the challenge and obtained the prize. We finished with a handwritten prayer from a Rights Respecting Representative.
