Blackhall Primary School are proud to be a Rights Respecting School. We are a caring community, whose values are built upon mutual trust and respect for all, according to the United Nations Conventions on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).
We believe that being a Right Respecting school supports a rich learning environment that places the best interests of the Child at the heart of all our policy and practice. Our aim is for these values to underpin our school values and ethos. We will be promoting these values through our everyday teaching, assemblies and various events.
The children in school have decided to focus on the following rights:
- Every child has the right to the best possible health care, safe water to drink, nutritious food, a clean and safe environment (article 24)
- Every child has the right to an education (article 29)
- Every child has the right to play (article 31)
- Every child has the right to play and rest (article 31)
The NSPCC came into school to tell us about their ‘Speak out stay safe’ campaign.
