At Meadows First School, we put children's rights at the heart of everything we do. We use the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) to teach about the rights of children across the world, and to encourage our children to be ambassadors in promoting and protecting the rights of others.As a result of the hard work of pupils and teachers to embed rights teaching throughout our school, were recently awarded the Gold Rights Respecting Schools Award,
A Rights Respecting School not only teaches its pupils about their rights as children, but also models rights and respect in all its relationships: between teachers/adults and pupils, between adults and between pupils.
At Meadows we have set up a team of Rights Respecting Champions which consists of members from years 1 to 4. These pupils meet regularly to discuss how we embed rights and responsibilities into our everyday life and how our school can help support children in other countries that do not have access to all of the children’s rights.
Each class has its own Rights Respecting Charter that they have devised together.
