Rights Respecting Group Meeting - 23rd November
The Rights Respecting Group have finalised the wording for the signs on the yard.
On our yard, we:
Play with everyone
Have kind hands and feet
Chill out and relax
Listen to playground leaders and grown ups.
Work with wellbeing council to zone the yard - the group would like to include a 'Zen Zone', which would be a quiet area where children can chill out and relax.
Look at designs for our yard signs
Rights Respecting Council - Autumn Term 2022
We met on Monday 24th October with Mrs Smith and Miss Evans-Jones.
We discussed our class charters that we have created with our teachers. Mrs Smith explained that the next step was to create a school Playground Charter.
The rights that we feel are important for our yard are:
The right to feel safe
The right to be yourself
The right to play and relax
We need to design it and Mr Jewitt has said that we can ask a company to produce a sign for us to display on the yard.
We are going to bring our design ideas to the next meeting after half term.
Rights Respecting Poster Competition
The Rights Respecting Group had a hard time judging all the amazing entries for the competition. The group decided they wanted the theme of the posters to be:
The right to relax and play
The right to an education
There were a huge amount of entries! Have a look at the winning posters below:

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)
