The staff of Elmgrove Primary School believe in helping children to both fulfil their potential in academic performance and to enjoy and succeed in their creative, expressive and sporting activities. We hope they will grow into young people who have the emotional capability to cope with their next steps once they leave our care. To help our pupils ‘REACH’ these goals, we are working towards becoming a ‘Rights Respecting School’. Last year, we achieved the first step towards this goal by attaining Bronze ‘Rights Committed’ status. We are now working towards gaining our Silver 'Rights Aware' status.
The ‘Rights Respecting School Award’ (RRSA) is presented to schools on behalf of UNICEF which is the world’s leading organisation working for the rights of children. In 1989, governments worldwide promised all children the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). The rights defined in the convention are rooted in what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfil their potential.
Gaining the ‘Rights Respecting School Award’ will help our pupils to grow into confident, caring and responsible young citizens both in school and within their wider community. By teaching our children about their rights and the resulting responsibilities and, by encouraging them to reflect on the outcomes of their actions, we will foster a positive environment where our pupils are safe and able to succeed.
