We are working towards becoming a UNICEF 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 and Botswana.
To become a recognised rights-respecting school, our children must be confident understanding their rights as children. They will enjoy telling you that in fact they have more rights than adults! As a rights-respecting school we also aim to model rights and respect in all its relationships, between adults and children alike.
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.
We are currently working on becoming a Rights Respecting School and each half term we select one right that we encourage the children to think particularly hard about. Each month one child per class receives an award for their work towards the value that we are working on.
