St Joseph's Catholic Primary School is a Rights Respecting School and we learn about children's rights through many different activities and subjects.
We aim to make sure that all children and adults know about and have an understanding of the United Nations Rights of the Child. An important part of the work we are doing in school is to make sure that children are aware of their responsibilities in ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to enjoy their rights. This means that we regularly consider how our behaviour might affect or impact upon the rights of others; this may be in the classroom, out in the playground as well as in relation to global issues.
We currently hold the recognition award and we are working very hard towards achieving Level 1.
We recently held a competition in school, where children were asked to design a logo which suitably reflected the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. We received several entries from every class and the deciding vote was given to the School Council members.
Below is the winning mascot, Rover, who is popping up all over the school. Keep a look-out for Rover, as he identifies where a right is being met within our school.
