Rights Respecting Schools Award towards Level 2

Beechlawn School aims to be a school where every aspect of a child is focused on and developed, including the area of well being. As part of our school’s aims to promote a happy and successful school, we are working towards Level 2 as a “Rights Respecting School”. This is an award which is given to schools on behalf of UNICEF.

 

UNICEF is the world’s leading organisation working for children and their rights. In 1989, governments worldwide promised all children the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). These rights are based on what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfil their potential.

 

The ‘Rights Respecting School’ award (RRSA) will help our pupils to grow into confident, caring and responsible young citizens both in school and within the wider community. By learning about their rights our pupils, your children, also learn about the importance of respecting the rights of others i.e. their responsibilities.

 

Beechlawn School pupils are encouraged to reflect on how their behaviour and actions affect those around them, which allows us to build and maintain a positive and safe learning environment for all, both in the classroom and around the school grounds.

 

In our School we promote Rights through a variety of activities and strategies:

We really hope that you will feel able to support us and your child in working towards our goal of being a ‘Rights Respecting School’.

All pupils are aware of the Rights Respecting School Award as it was the focus of assembly on Tuesday 27th September 2016.
