RIGHTS RESPECTING SCHOOLS
In 1989, governments around the globe adopted the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) which recognised that all children have the right to be protected and have their voices heard.
At Hartburn Primary School, we are committed to promoting pupil voice and involving the children in their own learning and social and emotional well-being. The Rights Respecting School Award enables the children to contribute to changing and improving not only our school, but also our local community and the wider world.
We are very excited to have achieved Bronze of UNICEF’s Rights Respecting Schools Award in April 2021. In 2021-2022 we will be working towards Silver by embedding children’s rights into all aspects of our curriculum.
We will be learning about the 42 children’s rights listed in the UNCRC. They are listed here:
