Rights Respecting School
An Important Message from our Rights Respecting Rangers
"St Paul's is on a journey to understand and recognise children's rights. We would like everyone to feel confident with themselves, respect each other, speak out and have a growth mindset. In One Voice and assemblies the adults and children learn together about rights. In class we link the rights with our learning. Every month we focus on a different children's right.
Please feel free to come and chat to us about children's rights and join us in our quest to gain silver status".
Our Rights Respecting Rangers are 14 children from Year 3 to 6 who are led by Ms Crinson and Miss Gallienne. The Rangers help to lead the weekly 'One Voice' groups to teach the whole school about Childrens' Rights.
What are Child Rights?
The United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) is a legally binding agreement followed by the majority of countries. It describes what children need to survive, grow up and develop their full potential.
All children everywhere in the world are entitled to the 45 articles contained in the convention.
The Convention also explains how adults and governments must work together to make sure all children enjoy all their rights.
