Rights Respecting School
By Konstantina and Maisie
UNCRC - The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child
Everyone under 18 has these rights.
Everyone has these rights no matter what.
You have the right to privacy.
You have the right to a good quality education.
You have the right to rest and play.
Why is the Convention important?
It helps people respect other peoples rights.
All classes have the Convention displayed and we use it for our class and school charters and when we are discussing rights.
The class charters have sentences on how staff and pupils should behave.
We make these up with our teacher.
We then sign or use our fingerprint to say we agree to follow these behaviours.
They also have the rights that are most important to us at school. The behaviours are linked to this to show how we can respect everyone's rights.
