Ferryhill Station School Rights Respecting Newsletter! 

 

Our school is currently working at Level 1 in the Rights Respecting Schools Award. The Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) recognises achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) at the heart of our school’s planning, policies, practice and ethos. A rights-respecting school not only teaches about children’s rights but also models rights and respect in all its relationships: between teachers / adults and pupils, between adults and between pupils. We achieved Level 1 in the Spring term of 2015.

 

We try to ensure that our children know their rights and how they respect the rights of others. Here is a Class Charter display from Class 1.

 

 

 

We use these cartoons daily, which show that children have rights and how important it is to respect the rights of others. We are using these images this term - we will change these termly, as our focus changes.

 

These images, used in school, are taken from the website www.sccyp.org.uk. 

 

This site has lots of useful information for Children and Young People and it is run by the Scottish Commissioner for Young People - his name is Tam Baillie. He works to protect the rights of children and young people.

This site is for children, young people and their parents. You can learn about your rights, make your voice heard and find out who can help you live a safe and happy life.
