Events

School Events

  • Dining Room Upgrade

Children wanted to improve the dining room. The team gained pupil voice on likes and dislikes in the dining room. Changes to our dining room were then made. 

  • Multi-cultural Day

Children helped design a special multi-cultural day where children could dress in traditional clothes and share stories and knowledge about different cultures. 

  • Soccer Aid

We held a special day for Soccer Aid and designed lots of playground activities for all the children in school to have a go at. We raised about £400!

Inter-School Events

We also work with other local schools to learn together and show our understanding of rights. We have created presentations about our schools and shared these. As well as this, we toured a local school going for their gold award. This gave us lots of ideas of how to promote rights for children even more.

Community Events

Not only do we intend for every child and school staff member to understand children’s rights, but we aim to help our local community understand about rights. 

  •  Near Neighbours

The team created poems about our school and their rights, to help people learn about children's rights.

  • Shoe Share

Children and local neighbours brought in unwanted shoes from home and these were collected by our Rights Respecting team and donated to Clarks. There were hundreds of pairs of shoes.
