Rights Respecting school
Unicef UK Rights Respecting Schools
‘UNICEF UK's Rights Respecting Schools Award seeks to put the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child at the heart of a school's ethos and culture to improve well-being and develop every child's talents and abilities to their full potential.’
Each week in school there is an assembly all about the children’s rights in accordance with UNICEF and the Rights Respecting School Award. Each week there is a clear focus that supports the implementation of articles that pupils are able to discuss in class. The articles that are shared are taken directly from the 42 articles of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
To ensure the pupils are able to continue to learn about their rights and as we cannot be in school at the moment, each week there will be a different focus/article on this page. There will also be a PowerPoint to share as a family and for children to continue to learn about their rights.
If you choose to complete any creative work from the PowerPoint, please share on the RRSA Facebook community group, on Twitter using hashtag #RRSA and @LyminsterSchool.
Sharing your work
Please email any work relating to Article 28 to the school office at Lyminster Primary so that it can be added to the school website. Please label it as you wish it to be seen on the website-first name only, or first and last name. Please include in your heading RRS. Thank you. Mrs Galvin
The focus for this week is…Article 28 - The right to education.
Every child has the right to an education.
Primary education must be free and different forms of secondary education must be available to every child.
Discipline in schools must respect children’s dignity and their rights.
Richer countries must help poorer countries achieve this.
