UNICEF Rights Respecting School

UN Convention on the Rights of the Child
The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) is the basis of all UNICEF’s work and its principles lie at the heart of the Rights Respecting Schools Award. Using the CRC as a guide, UNICEF work with more UK schools than almost any other organisation. It is the most complete statement of children’s rights ever produced and is the most widely-ratified international human rights treaty in history.
The CRC has 54 articles that cover all aspects of a child’s life and set out the civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights that all children everywhere are entitled to. It also explains how adults and governments must work together to make sure all children can enjoy all their rights, whatever their ethnicity, gender, religion, language, abilities or any other status.
The children across different classes have been doing activities based on different articles taken from the 'UN Convention of Rights of the Child'.
Please see some pictures below of what the children have been doing to explore Article 7 - 'The Right to a Name' which develops the children's sense of self and identity.
