Our Rights (and responsibilities)

We have achieved Level 1 of the UNICEF ‘Rights Respecting School Award’. As part of this, all children are familiar with the UN Convention on the rights of the child. All children democratically selected the five rights that we focus on and have become central to our school ethos.

These rights and the responsibilities that accompany them are reflected throughout the school and in all that we do. In September each class creates its own ‘Class Charter’ based on these rights. The Charter is signed by the whole class and staff then displayed in a meaningful way. Behaviour is supported through an understanding of what is right and wrong and the impact our choices can have for ourselves and others.

We pride ourselves on treating every child as unique and appreciating the differences and similarities we share. We encourage and teach pupils to do the same. Every child is encouraged to grow on an individual basis as well as ‘together’ as a part of our school team: we believe that our school is the perfect environment for this.

Through our work on Rights we have developed and value our strong pupil voice. We teach our children about democracy through decisions that are made in class and across the school.  We visit Parliament every year and invite our local MP and Councilor in to school to talk about their work.

Our pupils have a prominent voice through the various councils and as individuals. They are consulted with, as much as possible, regarding the way we improve our school, develop our curriculum and refine our approaches to teaching and learning.

 

  1. We all have the right to be safe and healthy (To share ideas and listen to others)
  2. We all have the right to join in lots of activities, play and relax (To be kind, caring and supportive)
  3. We all have the right to any special care and support we need (To look after ourselves, each other and our school)
  4. We all have the right to develop our own personality and talents (To always try hard and encourage each other to be the best that we can be)
  5. We all have the right to help make important decisions (To take part, play fair and include others)
