 We are a Rights Respecting School

 

St Augustine's CE Primary School is a Rights Respecting School.  We believe in the rights of all children.  In 1989 governments around the world promised all children the same rights by adopting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.  Every child and young person in the world has these rights, no matter who they are or where they live.

 

Our Rights Respecting Steering group includes three members of staff, one governor and twelve pupils.  We have worked together to select 11 rights we, as a whole school will focus on this year.

The right to say what you think should happen and be listened to

Harvest Festival

This year some of the children from the steering group were responsible for leading our school Harvest Festival.

They told us how many children across the world do not receive their right to food and fresh water. We all thought about how lucky we are to have food and water and thought of ways in which we could help others to receive their rights.

One way in which we could help, was to share the food from the harvest.

Some children took all the food that was kindly donated to the local food bank, where many families and their children will be able to benefit.

OutRight Campaign


Article 22 - you have the right to special protection and help if you are a refugee as well as all the rights in the Convention.

 

We have taken part in OutRight this year and learnt a lot about the rights of refugee children. We believe that the UK's family reunion law needs to be fixed to include other members of the family (e.g. aunties and uncles) to make it fair for refugee children. We have written to our local MP and hope for a positive change that will help children who are refugees to be reunited with their family no matter who their family is.

Our theme during friendship week was 'All Different. All Equal.'
