Rights Respecting School

Meadowside Community Primary & Nursery School aims to be a school where every aspect of a child is focused on and developed, including the area of well being. As part of our aim to promote a happy and successful school, we are working towards recognition as a “Rights Respecting School”. This is an award which is given to schools on behalf of UNICEF.

UNICEF is the world’s leading organisation working for children and their rights. In 1989, governments worldwide promised all children the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). These rights are based on what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfil their potential.

 The ‘Rights Respecting School’ Award (RRSA) will help our pupils to grow into confident, caring and responsible young citizens both in school and within the wider community. By learning about their rights, our pupils also learn about the importance of respecting the rights of others i.e. their responsibilities.

Every week we have an 'Article of the Week' that links to our assemblies and a class is set a challenge to design their own poster illustrating this right. The best one wins a prize and their poster is displayed on our main display and in every class.
