Rights Respecting


Article 2 - All children have these rights no matter what! 

At Crwys Primary School we believe that a child’s wellbeing is at the heart of their education. We are proud to be a Rights Respecting School. The Rights Respecting Schools Award is a programme run by UNICEF that aims to put children’s rights at the centre of education in the UK. This involves embedding children’s rights into the ethos and culture of the school in order to improve the pupils’ wellbeing.

Having recently, successfully, achieved the required standards to be awarded Silver status, we are working towards Gold status by fully engaging and educating the wider school community.

 ‘A Rights Respecting School teaches children and young people that they have rights under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. From this starting point they also learn their responsibility to respect others' rights in all relationships in the community.' (UNICEF)

Posters are displayed in every class in our school for easy reference for staff and pupils.  

Right of the Month

During the year through Personal, Social and Emotional (PSE) class activities, events and assembly themes, our children will learn that:

  • They have rights and that they should be informed of those rights.
  • They should be helped to exercise and enforce their rights.
  • Those rights should lead to responsible actions.

            In addition children will benefit from

  • Improved self-esteem and wellbeing.
  • Improved behaviour and relationships.
  • Enhanced moral understanding and support for Global justice.
  • Positive attitudes towards diversity in society.


We have carefully chosen a ‘Right of the Month’ according to the time of year.
