As part of our school’s aims to promote a happy and successful school, we have just successfully achieved the “Rights Respecting Silver School Award”.
The ‘Rights Respecting School’ award (RRSA) helps 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 pupils, your children, also learn about the importance of respecting the rights of others.
UNICEF is the world’s leading organisation working for children and their rights. In 1989, governments worldwide promised all children the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). These rights are based on what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfil their potential.
Our Rights Respecting Steering Group also known as RRSA Ambassadors are a group of children from across the school who work to ensure that all members of our school community are made aware of the rights afforded to them through the UNCRC.
Here are some photos from our recent events linked to Rights Respecting:
We are now working towards becoming a SILVER Rights Respecting School.
A Rights Respecting ethos is already at the heart of everything we do at Escomb. Our children understand and appreciate that we are global citizens living in a wider world with different values and lifestyles. They take part in and organise a number of events to celebrate this and we have enjoyed links with schools in Japan, Tanzania, Botswana, Mozambique, Spain, Finland and Czech Republic.
Our children are confident and understanding their rights. They enjoy telling you that in fact they have more rights than adults! As a rights-respecting school we model rights and respect in all its relationships, between adults and children alike.
Teaching and learning ABOUT rights.
Teaching and learning THROUGH rights.
Teaching and learning FOR rights.
The Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) is awarded by UNICEF and recognises achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) at the heart of our school. If you would like to view a child-friendly version of the convention, please click here.
