What is a Rights Respecting School?
The Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) recognises achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) at the heart of a school's planning, policies, practice and ethos. A Rights Respecting School not only teaches about children's rights but also models rights and respect in all its relationships.
Why do we want to be a Rights Respecting School?
St Peter's see rights as the foundation of what we do in school. We want our children to demonstrate and model rights respecting behaviours so that they can make a difference. It is our job to make sure that the children at St Peter's have rich, memorable learning experiences that will shape their lives.
