Rights Respecting Schools

What is Unicef's 'Rights Respecting Schools'?

We are committed to placing the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child at the heart of our core values and ethos; believing children’s participation is integral to all aspects of school life. This results in empowered and self-confident children who can advocate for the rights of children everywhere.

This ethos further fosters a sense of community, respect and responsibility. It encourages the children to be active and informed citizens, who look to develop a positive future for all; campaigning and raising awareness.

The children’s experiences at Gwyn Jones Primary ensure the children know that they have the Rights of the Child and that these rights are inalienable. They also understand responsibilities they have as members of our local and global society.

How is this taught in school?

The Rights of the Child are at the heart of all the work undertaken across the curriculum and in all the policies in school. Each class has a core text each half term which are used for English lessons. These explore the rights as well as local and global issues.

We also take time to celebrate the rights in special events across school including "Take One Picutre Week", Expressive Arts Week, Anti-bullying week and Rights Respecting Day. This special events highlight the significant of the RRS as well as giving the children exciting, fun experiences.
