Rights-Respecting Schools Ambassadors
Our new Right Respecting Ambassadors are already up and runnung and ready to build on last year's success of achieving our GOLD status for the second time.
Our first assembly, promoting the Right to an Education (Article 28), has already taken place and they were all - along with some of our Student Council members - excellent in the delivery of this. Follow up activities will be taking place in class over the next couple of weeks.
This is all to do with our 'Article of the Month' iniative that we have introduced in school to ensure all children have a detailed understanding of their rights.
In the first meeting, the amabassadors have also come up with some other fantatsic ideas to support rights, not only within our school, but in the wider community also. Some of these ideas are as follows:
*Teach lessons across the school - focusing on the younger year groups who have not had as much exposure to assemblies/ lessons about them.
*Meet with all the school staff and talk to them about children's rights - spending extra time with new teachers and teaching assistants.
.Design information leaflets and other resources to tell parents and families about our rights.
*Contact other schools and see if they would like to know more about our work on children's rights.
*Run parent workshops so there is more community awareness about rights.
So with our first assembly under our belts and dicussions with another school about taking on Rights Respecting status already underway, our team have made a flying start - let's keep it up!
