Rights Respecting School
In Partnership with UNICEF
In January 2020, Cheadle Hulme Primary School was awarded Bronze: Rights Committed status. This is the start of our quest to progress through Silver: Rights Aware status, in order to eventually become a Gold: Rights Respecting School.
Our steering group, consisting of children across the school, is aimed to influence and drive forward change in our school. The steering group provides a key link between the children, teachers, and senior leaders within our school, along with the wider community, in order to take a lead in developing and delivering the school’s rights respecting action plan.
Our Articles of the term, featured centrally on our Rights Respecting School display, will be communicated via our whole school assemblies, parent/carer newsletter and twitter feed. Please take time to talk with your children at home about the Convention on the Rights of the Child and what it means to be ‘rights respecting’.
Our aim is to ensure that the Convention on the Rights of the Child, along with the values of dignity, justice and respect (curriculum driver), underpin all that we do at Cheadle Hulme Primary School. We aim for our children to be passionate advocates for the rights of other children, whilst understanding that adults are duty bearers and are duty-bound to help all children enjoy their rights. We believe that our children are the innovators and change-makers of our society; our investment in them is of upmost importance!
