Here at MoL we are working hard to ensure all our children’s rights are being met.
We are documenting our journey by working towards becoming a Rights Respecting School.
As part of the Right Respecting journey, young people and the school community learn about children’s rights and putting them into practice every day. The Award is not just about what children do but also, importantly, what adults do. In Rights Respecting Schools children’s rights are promoted and realised, adults and children work towards this goal together.
There are four key areas of impact for children at a Rights Respecting school; wellbeing, participation, relationships and self-esteem.
The difference that a Rights Respecting School makes goes beyond the school gates, making a positive impact on the whole community.
- Children are healthier and happier
- Children feel safe
- Children have better relationships
- Children become active and involved in school life and the wider world
Our Progress So Far…
So far we have submitted the evidence for our Bronze award and are working hard on our Silver award.
Last year our Senior Leadership Team RAG rated our schools performance against the Rights Respectign criteria and then made an action plan for next steps. You can see our scores and action plan here:
This years Senior Leadership Team alongside staff accross the school, have been working towards completing some of the action points. Here is the children’s take on how we are getting on:
As well as this we held an online parent workshop where parents were able to listen to our plans and ask any burning questions. The recording of the workshop below gives a little more information about Rights Respecting Schools and our journey so far.
Stay tuned to our blog to see how we progress!
