Rights Respecting Silver School
We are very pleased to tell you that we have been awarded our Rights Respecting Silver Award (September 2018). This award, granted by Unicef UK to schools, shows that we have made good progress towards embedding children’s rights in the school’s policy, practice and ethos, as outlined in the RRSA Strands and Outcomes.
Rights Respecting Assemblies
Each month, we deliver assemblies which help us all to learn about the rights of the child.
Some of our recent assemblies have been about -
National Children's Day
World Health Day
World Earth Day (Relating to articles 24 and 29)
Rights Respecting Schools' Conference
We visited Manchester Town Hall for a Rights Respecting Schools' Conference. Here we found out about how other schools achieved their Silver Rights Respecting Schools' Award. We also had great fun learning more about children's rights through a variety of activities.

We set new challenges each week for children to complete on our school blog. Have a look and see if you can complete the '100 Word' and '5 Sentence' challenges.
We also help with the delivery of family workshops at school.
During the Spelling Workshop, we showed families how to complete a variety of activities to help children with the learning of their spellings.
During the Maths Workshop, we demonstrated how to play a variety of maths games to help with the learning of the multiplication tables.
