Rights respecting school

Glenfrome Primary is proud to be a Rights Respecting School – that means we put the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) at the heart of everything we do. We promote children's rights and empower them to become global citizens.

A rights-respecting school not only teaches about children's rights but also models rights and respect in all its relationships: between teachers / adults and pupils, between adults and between pupils. The convention recognises that all children have rights such as:

  • the right to an education

  •  the right to clean water

  • the right to be safe

We know and understand our rights, and we respect the rights of others.

What have we done so far?

The school community was introduced to the convention in September 2010. Each class began the journey by creating class charters displaying rights relevant to the class, alongside responsibilities the children have to ensure every child has their right met. The children have also thought about the rights of children in other countries, such as those affected by the earthquake and Tsunami in Japan. The children have also found out about Fairtrade and the Red Cross, enabling them to become true Global Citizens.

Since September 2011, every class have created new charters and have continued learning about the convention. This learning now takes place in PSHE lessons, as well as in History, Geography and Literacy.
