We are proud to present our new Rights Respecting School Award (RRSA) mascot…
‘Righteous Rex’ – a very ‘righteous’ tiger designed by one of our year 5/6 pupils!
Our school is currently working hard to gain Level 1 RRSA (Rights Respecting School Award) – granted by UNICEF to those UK schools who show good progress towards embedding children’s rights within their school’s policy, practice and ethos.
The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, or UNCRC, is the most complete statement of children’s rights ever produced and is the most widely-ratified international human rights treaty in history.
The Convention has 54 articles that cover all aspects of a child’s life and set out the civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights that all children everywhere are entitled to. It also explains how adults and governments must work together to make sure all children can enjoy all their rights.
Every child has rights, whatever their ethnicity, gender, religion, language, abilities or any other status.

Over the coming weeks and months, our School Parliament will be discussing some of the rights which all children and young people have within our school, with pupil’s during whole school assemblies – for example, looking at the right to play and reviewing our school playground charter, playground equipment provision, school buddy system and the ‘friendship stop’ etc:
