What we do
The Rights Respecting Group work tirelessly to ensure all children understand the rights of the child, as outlined in the Unicef charter for children’s rights.
Their primary aims are:
- To apply for and achieve the Right Respecting Award for our school

- To help pupils understand difference and diversity in our modern world
WHAT A LOAD OF RUBBISH!
The right to a clean, safe environment (Article 24)
On Friday 15th March our Rights Respecting Ambassadors joined forces with the Eco Warriors and parents to help clean up the local area and promote the necessity for looking after our environment and the wider community.
“It’s our job to keep our environment clean and safe,” said Scarlett.
Everyone worked hard together and enjoyed picking up all of the rubbish around South Church. We managed to fill lots of bin bags making our environment a much cleaner and safer place to be.
“It is important that we keep our environment clean because we don’t want to hurt animals with all of our rubbish,” said Matilda.
This group will be involved in achieving “The Rights Respecting Schools Award” which embeds values in daily school life and gives children the best chance to lead happy, healthy lives and to be responsible, active citizens.
In our Rights Respecting action group we have been very busy finding out about children’s rights. We found out that ‘rights’ are things that every child should have or be able to do and all children should have the same rights. We looked at the UN Convention on the Rights of the child and we are looking forward to learning more about our rights.
