Bronze Award - Rights Respecting

We are thrilled to announce that we have been awarded the Bronze Award of the Rights Respecting Schools Awards.  This is recognition of our commitment to respect the rights of all children.  Over the next year we will be working towards our Silver Award: we will be learning about children’s rights; learning through children’s rights (making sure we as a school community celebrate and respect children’s rights); and working for the rights of other children who may not enjoy the rights that we do. 


We are all really excited about all that we have planned to make Turves Green Primary School a Rights Respecting School.


Rights Respecting Schools Award

We are excited to be working on gaining our Rights Respecting Schools Award as a recognition of our commitment to the rights of the child as set out in the UNICEF Convention on the Rights of the Child.  We are currently working towards our Bronze Award.   

We have a steering group made up of children from each class in school, a representative from the governors, Ms Rowlands and Mrs Belcher.  The steering group will meet to make sure the school is doing all it can to respect children’s rights.  Our steering group will meet once each half term.  We met first on 30 January 2018.  We talked about what the Rights are, thought about what they might look like in school and we chose some posters to go up around the school corridors.  

We will learn about our rights through assemblies, through lessons in class and through how we get on with each other in the corridors and outside.  Check out information in the newsletter about how we are getting on and what you can do to support us.
