Rights

We learn about rights in different ways - take a look:

CLASS CHARTERS

  • Children in the class have chosen up to 3 articles that are important to them
  • The duty bearers (the adults who work in the classroom) help children to follow and understand the rights

MONTHLY ARTICLES

Each month we choose an article that the children and our school community learn about. It is displayed in our dining room, along with our photos of our rights respecting team and a display we designed and helped make.

 

This month the right we are learning about is;

Article 29 - education must develop every child's personality, talents and abilities to the full.

ASSEMBLIES

Our rights respecters help lead our assemblies where we teach the whole school about the article of the month.

ONLINE LEARNING AND HOMEWORK

Learning about rights during Lockdown was important. We updated online learning with weekly articles. We also set fun homework activities in some classes about the rights.
