Right of the Month

June 2019 – All Articles within the UNCRC. This month we are looking at International Children’s Day. We had an assembly linking this to our broad, general health and well-being and being a good friend to others, ensuring everyone feels included and respected. Remember to add to our Pupil Voice board with all the wonderful, kind things you do for others this month.

Below is a little activity which is on our RRS display wall. It links to all Articles in the UNCRC. Can you find any examples of where Rights are being upheld or abused? (There are two resources sheets).

May 2019 – Article 2 (anti-discrimination)
All children have these rights, no matter who they are, where they live, what their parents do, what language they speak, what their religion is, whether they are a boy or girl, what their culture is, whether they have a disability, whether the are rich or poor. No child should be treated unfairly on any basis.
