Rights and Respecting


Rights Respecting School

What does it mean?

Shawclough is a  Rights and Respecting School and our aim is for children to know what their rights are. All children have a responsibilites to make sure their rights and other childrens rights are achieved.

On 20th November 1989 the world made a set of promises for every child on earth.

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the child is an International statement of all of those promises.

Unicef protects and promotes those rights.

Those rights try to make sure that every child is healthy, educated, and listened to. They also make sure that all the children are protected from violence, abuse and explotation.

Our school is a Rights Respecting School.

Being a Rights Respecting School has become part of our everyday school life.

As pupils and staff we now know are rights and we work together to make sure that every child in our school has those rights.

This means we all have the responsibilty to play and we try and work as a team to support each other.
