Rights Respecting Schools Award
Our Article of the month is: Article 14: Your right to follow your own religion.
What are children's rights?
Below you will find a summary of the UNCRC. These rights are universal and unconditional.
After all of our hard work to introduce children's rights to our school community, we have been awarded the Rights Respecting Schools Bronze Award.
Family Discussion Homework
To promote discussion and understanding of children's rights, each child will receive a family learning homework linked with the article of the month. We have begun this with January's article-Article 14: The right to follow your own religion.
World Religion Day
To help explore our article of the month, Article 14: Your right to follow your own religion we have celebrated world religion day. We started off with a Whole School assembly where we explored the 6 Key faiths. Some of our parents also joined us for this. In class, we explored this further and each child has created a handprint about themselves which we will use to create a display that celebrates our similarities and differences.
Discussing Children's rights...
This month Year 2 have been discussing and exploring some of the articles with their parents during morning work.

Steering Group (Global Council) meeting 30.09.19
Take a look at our agenda from today's meeting. The children were keen to make notes and get back to class to tell everybody about our new article of the month. We also gave out some roles for ensuring we spread the word about our article of the month through twitter, classrooms and the newsletter. The children design a poster so that each classroom can display the article of the month alongside class charters.

Autism Awareness Week
As part of Autism Awareness week we considered the importance of Article 23-The right to special care and support and Article 28 The right to learn and go to school.
