We have started our journey to become a Rights Respecting School. Have a look at the lovely display in the foyer. All the children have explored some of the rights in the UN Convention on Children’s Rights. They have had special assemblies and have enjoyed reading “For Every Child.” Miss Corby and Mrs Jadid are setting up the steering group. Any parents or community members who would like to become involved, please contact us. You can read more at http://www.unicef.org.uk/UNICEFs-Work/UN-Convention/
Article 28: Every child has the right to an education. Primary education must be free. Secondary education must be available for every child. Discipline in schools must respect children’s dignity. Richer countries must help poorer countries achieve this.
We are working on
- Article 7 – the right to a name and a country
- and Article 31 – the right to play and relax
