UNICEF is the world’s leading organisation working for children and their rights. In signing the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child all governments have a responsibility to make both children and adults aware of these rights in the UK and across the world. The rights are all the things that children and young people need to make sure that they are happy, healthy and safe.
The ‘Rights Respecting School’ Award will help our pupils to grow into confident, caring and responsible young citizens both in school and within the wider community.
By learning about their rights, our children also learn about the importance of respecting the rights of others.
Please see the UNICEF website for a full list of articles
‘Every child has the right to a standard of living that is good enough to meet their physical, social and mental needs. Governments must help families who cannot afford to provide this.’
Education must develop every child’s personality, talents and abilities to the full. It must encourage the child’s respect for human rights as well as respect for their parents, their own and other cultures, and the environment.
