Title: Rights Respecting Schools

Rights Respecting Schools
Whats all thisrights stuff about?
  • UNCRC stands for the United Nations Convention on
    the Rights of the Child.
  • Its a list of rights that all children,
    everywhere in the world, have.

What are these rights for?
  • The rights on the list are all the things that
    children and young people need to make sure that
    they are
  • healthy,
  • happy and
  • safe

How many rights are there?
  • There are 54 articles in the list, and 42 of
    these are rights for children (the others are
    about how adults and governments should work
    together to make sure all children get all their

Responsibilities go with these rights!
  • How do we do that?
  • We need to talk to each other, using the language
    of rights and responsibilities, to make sure we
    receive our rights and responsibilities
  • For example Article 28 says I have a right to
    learn. How can I make sure that others learn?

Are these children receiving their rights?
So, what will we do next?
  • Come along to Pupil Leadership Meetings every
    Monday at 1.15pm room F036.
  • There will be focus in class and at assemblies on
    your rights.
  • Your rights will be displayed around the school
    and in your classes.

How will we see a difference in school?
  • Help us understand that others have rights too
    and that we should help them because they may be
    in need and are just as important as us
  • Bearsden Academy will link with a foreign school
    to promote the rights of all.
