Rights Respecting School Award

 

Rights Respecting School Award

The Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) recognises achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) at the heart of a school’s planning, policies, practice and ethos.

A rights-respecting school not only teaches about children’s rights but also models rights and respect in all its relationships: between teachers/adults and pupils, between adults and between pupils.

Class Charters

Each year group has been working on an individual class charter. They have been thinking about the articles from UNCRC which they feel are important to them and what they and their teachers should try to do to ensure that these rights are protected.

Each class has created a class charter based on the articles in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.  The children are reminded to respect their rights by having responsibilities linked to them.
