Rights Respecting School

As a rights respecting school, we care a lot about children’s rights. We teach the children about the United Nation’s Convention for the Rights of the Child(UNCRC) which is an agreed set of expectations for all children across the world. Many countries have signed up to this international charter that includes things like ‘all children have the right to an education’ (Article 28) and ‘every child has the right to a standard of living that is good enough to meet their physical, social and mental needs’ (Article 27). In total there are 54 articles but articles 1-42 are the articles that we focus on in school. We learn the difference between wants and needs and look at how we can achieve these rights for more people in the world. We are currently working on becoming a level 2 rights respecting school.
