Rights Respecting Schools
We are a Rights Respecting School. We have achieved our Bronze award and are currently working towards our Silver Accreditation.
All Saints’ Primary School aims to be a school where children’s rights are at the heart of our ethos and culture, to improve well-being and to develop every child’s talents and abilities to their full potential. As part of this plan we are currently working towards recognition as a ‘Silver Rights Respecting School’, an award given to schools on behalf of Unicef UK.
Unicef is the world’s leading organisation working for children and young people and their rights. In 1989, governments across the world agreed that all children have the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). These rights are based on what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfil their potential. We are part of a community of over 4,500 schools in the UK working on the Rights Respecting Schools Award.
All Saints’ pupils will learn about their rights by putting them into practice every day. A Rights Respecting School models rights and respect in all its relationships
Our Rights and Values council group ensure that:
- The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) underpins our values and decision making in school
- The whole school learns about the CRC and respects the rights of others
- Children are empowered to become active learners and active local and global citizens.
For more information about what the council is doing please visit our Rights and Values council page on our 'Children' section under School Senedd.
We really hope that you will be able to support our school on our journey towards becoming a UNICEF UK Silver Rights Respecting School.
