What is RRSA?

The Rights Respecting Schools Award is a recognised accreditation awarded to schools that actively promote and teach children about the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UN CRC). We have already achieved our recognition of achievement (bronze award and this year we are hoping to achieve our level 1 (silver) award.

 

What is the UN CRC?

The UN CRC is the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. The convention consists of 54 articles that are rights that all children should have to survive, thrive and reach their full potential. They are Universal, Inherent, Indivisible, Inalienable and Unconditional. The convention has been ratified by our government and is the most widely ratified human rights treaty in the world.

How the UN CRC links into everything we do in school.

 

The Rights Respecting Council

The RRS Council

In the RRS Council we make sure other children in the school learn about the rights of a child. Here are some of the things we do to make rights more fun: leaflets to go out to the whole school, challenges and competitions and small assemblies for KS1. We have weekly meetings and plan our next thing we are going to do. We make displays all over the school about how important it is to have rights.
