At Cradoc we are proud to be Committed to becoming a Rights Respecting School.
The Rights Respecting School Award (RRSA) is an initiative run by UNICEF UK, which encourages schools to place the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) at the heart of its ethos and curriculum. A Rights Respecting School not only teaches about children’s rights, it also models rights and respect in all its relationships, whether between children or between children and adults. We are pleased that in the Summer Term 2017 we were awarded the Recognition of Commitment to the Rights Respecting School Scheme, by Unicef.
The following pupils have been elected as Rights Reps for 2016-2017:
- Foundation Phase :
- Hazel Class : Iestyn and Maimee
- Lime Class : Florence and Megan
- Oak Class :
Along with Mrs Morris, Mrs Dillon and our Super Ambassadors, they make up the Rights Respecting School Committee.
CONGRATULATIONS to Nia and Finn, our Super Ambassadors.
This is a comparatively new role in school and our Super Ambassadors have three jobs. These are to:
- Inform other pupils in their school about the Children’s Commissioner for Wales and her powers
- Make sure other pupils know about about children’s rights under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
- Do special missions in school which help to inform the work of the Commissioner and have a real impact on children’s rights in Wales
