Rights Respecting

As a setting, we adhere to the values and principles of the United Nations Convention on Rights of the Child (UNCRC), which states that all children have rights and that everything we do should be in the best interest of the child (Article 1 and 3). In 2012 we were awarded the UNICEF Rights Respecting setting award in recognition of the work we do to promote children’s rights within our setting.

As a Rights Respecting Setting, we help children learn that they have rights, what these are and that rights are universal, so we need to learn how to respect the rights of others. Information on the UNCRC and how we help children learn about their rights is available from the link below.
