Rights Respecting Schools

September  2022:

 

The lead teacher for RRSA is Mrs Rogerson.

 

What does it mean to be a Rights Respecting School?

Rights Respecting Schools is an award by the charity UNICEF. The award is for schools that are working towards children’s rights becoming an embedded part of their school ethos. It teaches children about the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and enables them to be Rights Respecting Global Citizens and advocates for fairness and social justice in our local community, our country and across the globe. This encompasses our British Values and Prevent. 

 

What does RRSA look like in our school?

We gained our recognition of commitment in May 2016 and achieved the Level 1, Silver award in June 2017. 

 

 

Committees

This year, our Rights Respecting Ambassadors have decided to work as committees. We have three teams that each run a different working group around school:

  • Environment committee
  • Community committee
  • Health and Wellbeing committee

Their role is to ensure that the whole school is aware of the Rights Respecting Schools Award, to provide a link between the children, all staff members, the governors and the wider community and to plan and deliver events to help our children become Rights Respecting Global Citizens.

 

Class Charters

Every class in school has discussed, agreed on and designed their own class charters. These consist of three or four articles that the whole class agree to focus on and incorporate into their day to day lives. The children have discussed what both the adults (Duty Bearers) and the children (Rights holders) have to do to ensure the rights are met and have included these on their charters.

 

RRSA Assemblies

On Monday mornings, alternate KS1 and KS2 assemblies are held by class teachers where they have the opportunity to discuss and share new articles with the children. The children really enjoy these assemblies as they get the chance to discuss and explore new articles and see how the convention is followed in countries around the world.

 

This year, we will be covering the following articles in our RRSA assemblies:

KS1

Article 8 (preservation of identity)

Article 13 (freedom of expression)
