Pupil Voice/Rights Respecting Schools

As a school we have made a commitment towards the RRSRights Respecting School Award, which is an award which recognises schools that put children’s rights at the heart of the school’s planning, policies, practice and ethos.

A Rights Respecting School not only teaches children their rights, but also makes clear links for children between their rights and their responsibilities. It also raises children’s global awareness of the rights of children around the world. 

We have made a really positive start on our Rights respecting journey this term, and we have introduced the Rights Respecting School Award to all children, parents, staff and governors. Each class has designed their own class charter and children have started to link rights with their responsibilities.

Our ‘Pupil Voice’,  elected by their classmates, meet regularly to put forward the opinions of all of the children which helps to inform the development of the school. In the Summer Term, the Pupil Voice wrote and presented a behaviour leaflet to parents (see the Policies' page of this website.  Each child in Pupil Voice wears a Rights Respecting School badge, raising the profile of our rights and responsibilities throughout the school.

The Pupil Voice have planned a whole school art day, where we all got together to illustrate our rights, these are on display around our school and were in the local community for a while too.

Mrs Griffin and Dr Tilling (one of our school governors) are supporting our Pupil Voice group.

Pupil Voice are currently:

- working hard to communicate with our friends from Mufilera in Zambia.

- planning a Rights Respecting School assembly for the rest of the school.
