Rights Respecting School
James Hamilton Primary aim to become a Rights Respecting School. This Award is given to schools by UNICEF the world’s leading organisation working for children and their rights. In 1989, governments worldwide promised children the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC).
Last session we achieved our Bronze Award so now our plan is to move forward to achieve our Silver Award, through continuing to embed children’s rights across the whole school community.
This session so far every class has created their own Class Charter putting children’s rights at the heart of learning.
We have a pupil group called the ‘The Right Busters,’ who meet regularly to share information and ideas on how we can continue to ensure all children and adults are familiar with children’s rights.
