Rights Respecting Schools

In September 2021, we began our Rights Respecting Schools journey. We attained our Bronze award which demonstrated our commitment to the UNCRC rights of the child in 2022. We are currently working towards our Silver Award in partnership with St Francis RC Primary School as a whole campus approach. There are a number of strands to this which include: Strand A: Teaching and learning about rights- The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) is made known to children, young people and adults who use this shared understanding to work for improved child well-being, school improvement, global justice and sustainable living. Strand B: Teaching and learning through rights, Ethos and Relationships - Actions and decisions affecting children are rooted, reviewed and resolved through rights. Children, young people and adults collaborate to develop and maintain a school community based on equality, dignity, respect, non-discrimination and participation; this includes learning and teaching in a way that respects the rights of both educators and learners and promotes well-being. STRAND C: TEACHING AND LEARNING FOR RIGHTS – PARTICIPATION, EMPOWERMENT AND ACTION - STRAND C: TEACHING AND LEARNING FOR RIGHTS – PARTICIPATION, EMPOWERMENT AND ACTION Children are empowered to enjoy and exercise their rights and to promote the rights of others locally and globally. Duty bearers are accountable for ensuring that children experience their rights. As a campus, we are striving to embed these in our schools to ensure that in all contexts the principles of equality, dignity, respect, non-discrimination and participation should be ‘visible around the school’ and be understood and spoken about by adults.
