Rights Respecting Schools

Windsor Clive Primary School was awarded its Bronze Rights Respecting Schools Award in December 2022. We are now working hard to achieve our Silver Award.

What is a Rights Respecting School?

In Rights Respecting Schools, the children and adults work together to make sure children’s rights are being promoted and respected. The whole school community works together to put children’s rights into practice every day.

UNICEF is the world’s leading organisation for children and their rights. They promote and champion the UNCRC (UN Convention on the Rights of the Child), and advocate for governments to protect children’s rights. The UNCRC is a universally agreed set of non-negotiable standards and obligations. It not only covers all aspects of a child’s life through 54 articles, but outlines the responsibilities that the government and adults have in making sure children can enjoy their rights.

ABCDE of Rights

We have used the ABCDE of Rights to help children learn about their rights. Remember, rights are different to ‘wants’! A right is a basic human need.

What are we doing to achieve our Silver Award?

Our school vision for the future is ‘focused on a relentless commitment to developing all pupils as ethical, ambitious and capable citizens who are ready to learn throughout their lives’, and our mission is provide every child with the chance to thrive and succeed every day.

 

We are working hard to make sure that our children are learning through their rights, not just about their rights. Windsor Clive Primary School now has a group of Rights Champions who meet every week to represent their peers, make sure the school is aware of the award through assemblies and posters, involve the whole school community through questionnaires, learning walks and online forms.

 

Teachers and classes have each created a Class Charter. The adults (duty bearers) and the children (rights holders) have together agreed what they will do to make sure their rights are being met and respected in school.

The teachers are ensuring that children have the opportunity to become rights respecting global citizens, who advocate for children’s rights both locally and globally. We are working on how children can learn through their rights, through our concept curriculum and through particular events and celebrations throughout the year.
