We are a Right Respecting School
As a school community we are working together to promote the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) in all that we do. Working towards the Gold award for Rights Respecting Schools, has helped us to celebrate learning and teaching which encourages respect for ourselves and others. This has also helped us further develop ways of involving all our pupils regardless of age, gender, race, ethnicity, disability, nationality and religion to become more empowered in the day to day running and the strategic vision of the school.
Some of the ways we illustrate this is through embedding the articles into our policies, School Development Plan, our positive behaviour approaches and strategies, curriculum and planning. We want our children to become leaders of the school, steering the school towards excellence, whilst developing citizenship and knowledge related to British values, examples of this are through the UNICEF Steering Group, School, and Faith, councils.
The UNCRC is embedded in our mission statement: Jesus Christ, Son of Mary, Son of God, is the centre of The Rosary Community where we live, love and learn together. UNCRC Articles, 3 The Best Interests of the Child, 12 Respect for the views of the child, 13 Freedom of expression, 14 Freedom of thought, belief and religion, and Article 29 Developing every child’s personality and talents, are direct examples of this.
We achieved the SILVER AWARD on 1st December 2016 and our now aiming towards the GOLD AWARD.
