Rights Respecting Schools Award

Children’s Rights

In 1989 the world made a set of promises to children when it adopted ‘The Convention on the Rights of the Child’. The CRC is a major milestone in the effort to achieve a world fit for children. It has inspired changes in laws to better protect children, changed the way international organisations work and helped to protect children during conflicts.

 

At World’s End Infants School we make a promise to help every child to realise their rights. To demonstrate our commitment to and support for children’s rights we are currently working towards becoming a Rights Respecting School. This involves teaching children about their rights and helping them to respect the rights of others both in school and across the world.

 

The rights that the children will be learning about in school are:

The right to education

The right to be safe

The right to good health

The right to relax and play

The right to be cared for and respected no matter who you are or where you come from

The right to be heard

Children are taught about rights in PSHE (Personal Social Health Education). They learn about children’s rights in assemblies, through fundraising activities and they learn to respect other people’s rights when staff model and encourage rights respecting behaviour throughout the day.
