Rights Respecting Update

We are now a Silver  Rights Aware school and over the next year we are aiming to achieve our Gold Award. The children will be thinking about one anthers rights and the rights of all children in our world across all their lessons and other activities in school.

 

We will be encouraging them to focus on a different right each week and would like you to be aware of these rights as well.

These are the Articles from the Children’s Charter that we will focus on this half term

Article 31    All children  have the right to  play and rest

Article 39   All children have the right to be protected from being hurt and mistreated.

Article 2 – All children have rights, no matter who they are

Article 12  All children have the right to be listened to

 

Thank you for your support

Mrs Wright
