Did you know that Allfarthing is a 'Rights Respecting School'? Perhaps you recognise the logo from displays around the school or remember seeing class charters on the classroom walls, but have been unsure what it all means.
Being a rights-respecting school means that at Allfarthing everyone puts the best interests of the child at the heart of everything we do. We teach the children about the United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) that says what adults (dutybearers), including parents, teachers and governments must do so that children, as the rights holders, grow as healthy as possible, can learn at school, receive protection, have their views listened to, and are treated fairly.
We also take practical steps to make sure that children's rights are respected at school. For example;
Article 19 of the UNCRC is about keeping children safe and so our actions include making sure our site is secure; thoroughly risk assessing school trips; teaching the children to behave with consideration for others; teaching the children about how to be safe online; providing cycle safety and swimming lessons and much, much more!
In each edition of the Allfarthing bulletin, the UNRRS prefects share their own explanations of how their rights are respected in a range of practical ways at Allfarthing.
Also look out for news about campaigns and events organised by the school and PTA which support the rights of all children to go to school and engage in a wide range of activities.
