Rights Respecting School

Glynne Primary School is a Rights Respecting School; we put the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) at the heart of everything we do. We have recently been awarded  ‘Rights Respecting Award Level 2′.  A school that achieves the Rights Respecting Schools Level 2 Award – the highest accolade granted by Unicef UK – has fully embedded the principles of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) into its ethos, culture and curriculum.

We are proud to be the first school in the West Midlands to achieve Level 2. A Rights Respecting School not only teaches about children’s rights but also models rights and respect in all its relationships: between teachers/adults and pupils, between adults and between pupils.

At Glynne we have a team of Rights Respecting Champions which consists of members from each year group. These pupils meet regularly to discuss how we embed rights and responsibilities into our everyday life and how our school can help support children in other countries that do not have access to all of the children’s rights.

Each Wednesday we hold a Rights Respecting assembly and ‘Rico’ our Rights Respecting Mascot is awarded to the class who have demonstrated our Rights Respecting ethos well.
