Learning About Rights as a School Community

Children and adults learn about children’s rights through school.

 

  • Teachers ensure children know about their rights through making explicit links to the Convention on the Rights of a Child in PSEH, RE, P4C and through completing projects which make a positive difference in the real world.

  • Teachers make incidental links to children’s rights through the whole curriculum e.g. when exploring a text which has an underlying theme around rights or by explicitly celebrating when children have helped realise rights of other children.

  • Displays in class have links to rights when relevant e.g. an area with water bottles should have a link to article 29.

  • The School Charter is displayed in every class.

  • Teachers help their class to nominate a Rights Respecting Council Representative through a democratic process and respond with action to the things their RRS Council Representative brings into class after Council meetings.

 

Children and teachers also help parents learn about children's rights through whole school events.

We learnt about each other’s cultures and traditions through a whole school project on ‘where did your family’s journey begin?’ Our parents joined in with our celebrations to too! We respect each other and make positive relationships through our whole community.

We learnt that every child around the world has the same rights through our whole school world cup topic and regularly fundraise for Children in Need to help realise children’s rights around the world.

Children through school learnt about their right to be safe when Peter Pan and his friends came to school.

We learnt about our right to come to school through our Alice in Wonderland attendance week.
