A Unicef UK Rights Respecting School is a community where children’s rights are learned, taught, practised, respected, protected and promoted.
Children, young people and the school community learn about children’s rights by putting them into practice every day. The Award is not just about what children do but also importantly what adults do – in Rights Respecting Schools, children’s rights are promoted and realised and adults and children work towards this together.
At Mandale Mill we are expanding the ways we promote Rights Respecting in our school. We achieved our Level One award in March and are currently working hard on trying to achieve our Level Two.
We have committed to a Rights Respecting Convention, which sets out Articles that each child/young person is entitled to, such as a free good-quality primary education (Article 28) and the right to an identity (Article 7).
This area of our website will be showcasing some of the wonderful things we do to be a Rights Respecting school and help everyone understand what each Article of the Convention is.
This is a song all about rights which we sing in assembly: it explains some of the rights and how adults help us achieve them! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LN_70HXxd5Y
