Rights Respecting Schools Award 2018

In this academic year we are working towards the Rights Respecting Schools Award.

We recognise that all our pupils have rights. We want to make sure they know them and they can enjoy them.

Throughout the year activities will take place to promote the articles set out in the UN Convention
on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). We need to protect our children but we need to educate them so they know how to protect themselves.

There are four articles in the convention that are seen as special. They’re known as the “General Principles” and they help to interpret all the other articles and play a fundamental role in realising all the rights in the Convention for all children. They are:

  1. Non-discrimination (article 2)
  2. Best interest of the child (article 3)
  3. Right to life survival and development (article 6)
  4. Right to be heard (article 12)

Form Classes are trying to raise awareness on a chosen article, from the 54 Articles stated. They have drawn up class charters which they will follow throughout the year.

Our school motto is "Every Child Matters". All the work that we do in St. Mary's, including the work for the Rights Respecting School Award, help us to ensure this motto is one we live by.

Please visit the Unicef website to learn more about the Rights Respecting School Award.
