Rights Respecting School Award
We are absolutely delighted to announce that in July 2019 we achieved Rights Respecting School Award Gold Level. This is the highest level on the rights Respecting journey and we have achieved this in a very short time. This is due to the enthusiasm and hard work of all pupils and their duty bearers. We are hoping to be able renew the award in 2022 and once again raising the profile of the award across our school!
Article 42 - Knowledge of rights - We believe that the children should be able to understand the rights that they have as a child in our care as a school community.
We are working hard to ensure children know about and understand their rights and that rights are talked about in our school community.
All children have been asked to explore their birthday right as part of their 100 point homework for the Autumn Term. This involves finding out about the right that links to your birthday (article number). If your birthday in on 4th of the month find out about article 4. You can also find out about your families birthday rights too.
In the Spring Term 100 point homework, the children have been asked to explore a number of specific rights agreed with their class teacher and respond in a way that means something to them.
The website link below has lots of information about each article that is child friendly.
