Rights Respecting Schools Award

What is the RRSA?

At Moldgreen we are a Rights Respecting School. The Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) is funded by the children's charity Unicef and is based around the children in school knowing their rights.

In 1989, governments across the world promised all children the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). The Convention says what countries must do so that all children grow as healthy as possible, can learn at school, are protected, have their views listened to and are treated fairly. See the documents below to download a child friendly version of the UNCRC.

The children will be learning about the UNCRC and the Articles it contains with their class teacher. Each class has made a set of Class Rules or a Class Charter to link their time in school to their rights as a child. There is a RRSA display on the top corridor with more information about the award and children's rights. A copy of the Class Rules/Charter displayed in the classrooms. You may have also seen copies of our Playground and Lunchtime Charters around school. Examples of charters and other important documents can be seen below.

Please check the Global Learning area of our School website to see some of the activities we've done which link to the Rights Respecting Schools Award.

 

... to all children and staff!

We recieved our Recognition of Commitment (ROC) towards the RRSA on 21st October 2016. We were also assessed for the Silver Award on 26th February 2018 and passed with flying colours! Our assessor was particularly impressed our fantastic children and staff she interviewed and the positive learning enviroment the school provides. Thank you for all your hard work towards becoming Rights Respecting.
