Wynyard Primary School is a Rights, Respecting School. In July 2017, we were extremely pleased to achieve our Rights Respecting School Award Level 1. Since achieving the award, we have continued to work collectively as a school to embed RRSA into our everyday routines and we are now looking at working towards achieving the Silver Award.
“Unicef works with schools in the UK to create safe and inspiring places to learn, where children are respected, their talents are nurtured and they are able to thrive. Our Rights Respecting Schools Award embeds these values in daily school life and gives children the best chance to lead happy, healthy lives and to be responsible, active citizens.”
At the beginning of each school year, every class creates a class charter. Class charters are developed individually by each class to reflect the convention and the articles they believe to be important to them. Class Charters consist of a number of agreed rights and how adults and children will respect these rights.
We believe it is important for children to understand their rights and to have access information that enables them to make informed decisions about their learning, health and wellbeing.
In February, we took part in a Mental Health Awareness day. We enjoyed participating in a range of activities, learning about mindfulness, being creative, body image and keeping fit.
We have organised lots of fundraising activities to support children’s rights in our local area, nationally and around the world.
