Rights Respecting School
Newall Green Primary School have achieved the UNICEF Rights Respecting bronze award: rights committed. Newall Green aims to be a school where children’s rights are at the heart of everything that we do, to improve well-being and to develop every child’s talents and abilities to their full potential.
Unicef is the world’s leading organisation working for children and young people and their rights. In 1989, governments across the world agreed that all children have the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). These rights are based on what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfil their potential.
Our pupils will learn about their rights by putting them into practice every day. A Rights Respecting School models rights and respect in all its relationships. The children will learn about the rights through assemblies and within their PSHE lessons.
We really hope that you will be able to support our school on our journey towards becoming a Unicef UK silver Rights Respecting School. It would be great if you could spend a few minutes reading through our questions & answers underneath, and also find a bit more about the Convention on the Rights of the Child by visiting unicef.org.uk/crc.
