At The Oaks Primary School, we aim to provide rich leaning opportunities that allow children to reach their full potential in a safe and happy learning environment. As part of our school’s aims to promote a happy and successful school, we have recently achieved the ‘Rights Respecting School’ Silver Award and are now working towards the Gold Award. These are awards which are given to schools on behalf of UNICEF.
UNICEF is the world’s leading organisation working for children and their rights. In 1989, governments worldwide promised all children the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). These rights are based on what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfil their potential.
The ‘Rights Respecting School’ award (RRSA) will help our pupils to grow into confident, caring and responsible young citizens both in school and within the wider community. By learning about their rights, our pupils learn about the importance of respecting the rights of others.
Work we have done so far:
