    Realising the Rights of Every Child

    Ever wonder how you can help a child in your life reach their dreams? You have more power than you think to nurture, protect, inspire and teach children around you to reach their full potential.

    The Rights Respecting Schools Award is a Unicef programme that aims to put children’s rights at the heart of schools work.  The aim is to embed children’s rights in our school ethos and culture to improve well-being and develop every child’s talents and abilities to their full potential. We aim to develop children’s awareness of their rights, and develop their awareness of the rights of others, helping them to become ‘global citizens’

    We are Rights Respecting School and achieved our Rights Respecting School Award Level 1 in July 2016. This ethos threads through our work, developing children’s understanding of their rights and the rights of others. Staff listen to children and children show respect for each other and for adults. Children contribute to planning their learning and learn about their rights at home with our ‘Rights Respecting Teddy’.

    We explain key rights to children through group time discussions, encouraging them to recognise rights by looking at and talking about pictures from UNICEF. We use the language of rights in everyday situations e.g. you have the right to a drink of water, you have the right to choose what you play with, you have the right to learn. We encourage children to reflect on how their behaviour affects those around them, which allows us to build and maintain a positive and safe learning environment for all
