Rights Respecting School

A Rights Respecting School teaches children their rights and models rights and respect in all its relationships: adult to pupil, pupil to adult and pupil to pupil.

All of our classrooms have Class Charters based on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). We have numerous displays and references to the UNCRC around the school and you will hear adults and children use the language of a Rights Respecting School in their everyday discourse. 

On Thursday 14th July 2011 we were all very proud to receive our Rights Respecting Schools Award from John Penrose during our Celebration of Achievement Service.

Mr Penrose acknowledged the efforts that our school community had made to be the first school in North Somerset to achieve this award. He spoke to us about how important it is for children to understand their rights and how they have to fight for children all around the world to achieve their rights as well.

Courtney, Max and Tayla from Year 6 were very pleased to be presented with the award from John Penrose. Max said “We have worked very hard all year for this award, but this makes it all worthwhile!”

Well done to these three children who have done so much to improve our school this year. A special thank you goes to Courtney, who has reviewed the year’s work recently in preparation to hand the baton onto Year 5.

We all look forward to continuing our journey as we progress towards level 2 of the award. In the meantime, look for the beautiful award certificate in our reception area.
