Rights Respecting School

Hayes Primary School have achieved their recognition of commitment towards UNICEF’s Rights Respecting Schools Award. We have done lots of work in class learning more about the United Nations Rights of the Child and all 42 rights. Our class charters have also helped us to use rights respecting language. Every classroom has 4 golden rights that are always respected (the right to be safe, the right to an education, the right to our own beliefs and opinions, the right to be healthy). Each class has also chosen another right that they feel is important to them in the classroom.

We also held a rights respecting week at school. In the afternoons, we learnt about one right that we had chosen. On the Friday afternoon we shared our learning with children from different year groups and adults in the community.

We are currently working towards our level 1 award and are learning more about the rights of children every day!
