In 1989, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child. This landmark treaty is the most widely ratified human rights agreement in history with 191 countries adhering to it. It spells out the rights of all children: to health, to education, to an adequate standard of living, to leisure and play, to protection from exploitation, to express their own opinions… and many more. All children have these rights.
The Unicef UK Rights Respecting School Award (RRSA) is based on principles of equality, dignity, respect, non-discrimination and participation.
A Rights Respecting School is a community where children’s rights are learned, taught, practised, respected, protected and promoted.
We are proud of the rights respecting and nurturing ethos at North Ealing Primary School and we have worked hard to gain Silver status which was awarded by Unicef in January 2018 for our Rights Respecting School journey..
It is important for both children and everyone associated with our school to understand the principles of the Convention on the Rights of the Child, therefore we’d like to direct you to both a child friendly and a full, more detailed version of the Convention.
