Respecting Rights At Haydon Wick Primary School

The Rights Respecting Schools award has been set up to create safe and inspiring places to learn where children are respected, their talents are nurtured and they are able to thrive. Currently we have achieved our ROC (Recognition of Commitment) at Haydon Wick Primary School. Our Rights Respecting Council are working hard on our journey to gain our Rights Respecting Award Level 1. There are 4 key areas of impact: well-being, participation, relationships and self-esteem.

Children’s rights are at the heart of our school ethos. We follow our motto ‘Working together and playing together.’ This supports Article 28: ‘You have the right to a good quality education’ as well as Article 31: ‘You have the right to play and rest.’ We are a values-based school which supports our moral understanding. The children are learning their responsibilities to ensure all children receive their rights. It has a positive impact on the whole school community.

The Rights Respecting Council are helping to raise awareness of the rights of the child through assemblies and helping to organise charity events. This year we celebrated ‘Day for change’ with great success. The children and parents of Haydon Wick Primary School were incredibly generous and we created a gigantic copper trail, we all dressed in blue and white and worked on rights respecting activities. Thank you to everyone for their incredible support.

UN Conventions on the Rights of the Child

Haydon Wick Class Charters

Each class created a fantastic charter at the start of the year which all the children have signed. They discussed their rights in school and how they could make sure everyone has their rights met through understanding their responsibilities. Then, as a class team, they decided which articles of the convention were the most important to their class. Here are some examples of the class charters we have created at Haydon Wick Primary School.
