Our Rights Respecting Schools Team 2017-2018

This is a new action group introduced this year and is made up of pupils from Prep 4 to Prep 7. The RRS Team will be focusing on raising awareness across school of the articles determined at the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, and embedding these in the ethos and curriculum of the Prep. Pupils aim to learn about their rights and the responsibilities that are implied and to associate rights with needs and distinguish between their rights and ‘wants’.  Through assemblies and special events, the RRS Team will then teach pupils within school that they have rights, what some of these rights are, how they are accessed and that they need to respect the rights of all other children in school. Each class has already begun this journey as they worked with their class teachers to develop a Class Charter for creating a positive learning environment.
