A part of our Rights Respecting Schools policy for this Autumn term 2018 we have took part in various Activity days across the school which has helped towards fundraising. Our most recent Activity was the Harvest festival where various foods were brought in from homes and donated to food banks which supports article 24 which states" Every child has the right to the best possible health. Governments must work to provide good quality health care, clean water, nutritious food and a clean environment so that children can stay healthy". Another one of our fundraising days was Jeans for Genes day where all staff members and pupils wore jeans and donated £1 each to go towards the cause. We have lots more fundraising days planned ahead so watch this space!
The rights of children are fundamental to all aspects of UNICEF’s work. At Rowan Park School staff and pupils are working together to make sure that the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child is embedded into our school day and through our work and play.
A Rights Respecting School teaches about children’s rights and respect in all its relationships.
Rowan Park School has Level 2 of the Rights Respecting School Award – Silver Award (Rights Aware). We are currently working towards our Gold award.
