Rights Respecting Schools Award website update January 2013

Our RRSA work in school has started this year with a steering group, arranging to meet weekly so that parents and children can be informed and have their ‘voices’ heard. (Article 12: Children have the right to say what they think should happen, when adults are making decisions that affect them, and to have their opinions taken into account).

From the initial meeting it has been decided 3 articles from the CRC to work on in school will be:

Article 3

All organisations concerned with children should work towards what is best for each child.

Article 24

Children have the right to good quality health care, to clean water, nutritious food, and a clean environment, so that they will stay healthy. Rich countries should help poorer countries achieve this.

Article 29

Education should develop each child's personality and talents to the full. It should encourage children to respect their parents, and their own and other cultures.

 

Article 24 as the theme for our Keeping Healthy week in school.

One day 8th February (UNICEF’s ‘A Day For Change’) will focus on raising money for:

 children in Africa. After sharing each class’s charter with parents,we have also decided to write a new school charter, which will be put together with the School Council and will be on display around school.
