Rights Respecting School

We are proud to be a Rights Respecting School. This means our pupils are Global Citizens, therefore they have an understanding of their rights which are embedded throughout the school day

  • in the classroom (Article 28: the right to an education),
  • in the dining hall (Article 24: the right to nutritious food and clean water),
  • in the playground, (Article 31: the right to relax, play and take part in a wide range of cultural and artistic activities)
  • in the local community (Article 2: child rights apply to every child without discrimination, whatever their ethnicity, gender, religion, language, abilities or any other status, whatever they think or say, whatever their family background.).
  • and as a global citizen (Article 4 (implementation of the Convention) Governments must do all they can to make sure every child can enjoy their rights by creating systems and passing laws that promote and protect children’s rights.)

This award helps develop pupils’ acceptance of differences and diversity whilst providing them with a strong moral compass.

The Rights Respecting Schools Award surrounds these values in daily school life and gives children the best chance to lead happy, healthy lives and to be responsible, active citizens. Using the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) as a guide.

Pupil Leadership Team

We have a committed Pupil Leadership Team who are determined to raise awareness regarding children’s rights. We meet once a half term to discuss, significant events and injustices thinking about what we can do to truly embed and promote children’s rights.
