We are a Rights Respecting School

In 1989, governments across the world adopted the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). This convention recognises that all children have the right to be treated with dignity and fairness, to be protected, to develop to their full potential and to participate.
We at St Anne’s are proud to be a Silver level UNICEF ‘Right’s Respecting School’. The Rights Respecting Schools Award is underpinned by the principles of the Convention on the Rights of the Child and aims to help children grow into confident, caring and responsible citizens both within school and the wider community.
We continue to develop our Rights Respecting approach through three strands;

Strand A: Teaching and Learning about rights
Strand B: Ethos and relationships
Strand C: Participation, empowerment and action

We now aim to achieve the Gold Award during the next academic year.
Examples of how our pupils understand and use their rights;
• An ‘Article of the week’ focus.
• Class charters.
• Our Rights Respecting Council
• Harvest Donations for Cornerstones.
• Fund raising for charities such as Macmillan, Barnardo’s, Epilepsy UK, Cafod, St Joseph’s penny, Save the Children and many more.
• Assemblies to support special calendar events such as Anti-Bullying week and Odd socks day, Black History Month, Epilepsy Awareness Day and Caritas Days.
• Writing letters to residents of Maye’s Gardens during the Spring term lockdown period
