Rights Respecting Week

We held a Rights Respecting Schools week at the beginning of the Autumn term to introduce UNICEF's Rights Respecting Schools.

The children learnt that they have a set of rights which they should expect to be given to them by the adults that look after them (parents, teachers, government etc).

The learnt that they also have the responsibility to make sure their actions allow other children to have access to their rights. 

The whole school looked at Article 28 - You have the right to a good quality education. You should be encouraged to go to school to the highest level you can.

Some classes looked at other articles as well, including;

Article 29 Your education should help you use and develop your talents and abilities. It should also help you learn to live peacefully, protect the environment and respect other people. 

Article 31 You have the right to play and rest.

Parents were invited in to learn about RRS from Mrs Williams and then they visited their children's classrooms to take part in activities.

In Year 2, children were learning about Article 28 and their right to an education. They designed their ideal classroom and talked about how they like to learn.
