Right to Respecting

 We are proud of being a Rights Respecting School!

Why be a Rights Respecting School?

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) is based on an analysis of what children need in order to thrive.  These needs can be grouped into four categories:

  • to survive as a fit and healthy person
  • to be protected from harm and abuse
  • to develop physically, mentally and socially
  • to participate as an active citizen

What is a Right?

A Right is something that children and young people are entitled to, they do not have to be earned, and they belong to all children and young people from the time they are born.

 At Sladefield Infant School, we want our children to know their rights and foster an ethos of tolerance and acceptance of everyone, respecting, not just their own rights, but the rights of others around them!

We achieved Level 1 of the Rights Respecting Award in December 2017 and achieved Level 2 in November 2018. We were are currently working towards Gold status.
