Rights Respecting Council


*******Update******We have heard this week that we have been successful in our first stage of becoming a Rights Respecting School and have the Rights Committed award.  We will soon receive the badge and will be able to display it on our website.


Work on becoming a Rights Respecting School started in the autumn term and the Rights Respecting Council started meeting in the spring term.  Mrs Smith introduced the award to staff and governors in November and we regularly have rights assemblies.  The council have completed a RAG survey to help inform our silver action plan.  They have created a survey for pupils to complete and want to hold a competition for pupils to design their own rights posters.


Summer term update - Right of the Fortnight


Our school value for this half term is Respect.  Assembly started off with how we can respect our planet and was linked to Earth Day.  Pupils completed activities on how they can respect and look after our planet in classes.  We learned about article 6 (The right to life) and article  24 (The Right to the best possible Health)
