Rights Respecting School

This term, we have started the journey of becoming a 'Rights Respecting School'.

This is a UNICEF UK initiative that aims to put children’s rights at the heart of school practice. It is based on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. The goal of a Rights Respecting School is to embed children’s rights into their ethos and culture to improve well-being and develop every child’s talents and abilities to their full potential.

The are a number of key rights within the Convention but you can see the 20 that we are focussing on in school on the attached document.

We will keep you up to date with our progress and how you can participate alongside your child. Have a look at some photographs on the News and Events tab from our Rights Focus Week when we launched this initiative at St Vigor and St John.
