Rights Respecting School Award

We are a GOLD Rights Respecting School! 

A huge well done and thank you to all the children, staff, parents, governors & everybody else who helped us achieve this amazing accolade. We are beyond proud and are very excited about continuing our journey as a GOLD school over the next few years.

 

What is the RRSA?

 

The RRSA recognises achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) at the heart of a school’s planning, policies, practice and ethos. For a school to receive accreditation, it must evidence that it has reached the four standards of a Rights Respecting School. A school uses these standards and other guidance provided to plan and monitor progress.

How do we do it?

At Wyndcliffe we are working together to promote the United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) as a community. All adults within school are aware of their roles as ‘Duty Bearers’ and encourage children to enjoy their Rights. Every classroom has a class charter linked to the UNCRC, lessons are linked to articles, assemblies refer to the convention and our SDP and policies have articles attached to them. Through discussion in and outside the classroom, our children are recognising how their rights empower them and are using this to make positive changes in and outside of the school community.

 

Our children led the assemblies today!

The Steering Group meet the governors of Wyndcliffe.

 

We wanted to make sure that everybody who is part of our school community knew all about the RRSA so the Steering Group joined in a Governors meeting and introduced themselves. They told them all the hard work they have been doing to promote the RRSA and the fun they've had along the way.  The governors were very impressed with the way the children presented themselves and their work. Well done!

Meet Ryan the Lion!

The Steering Group wanted a mascot to represent us as Rights Respecting Champions!  They chose a lion because they felt he represented everything we are at Wyndcliffe; strong, fierce and united!  He moves around each class holding an article to encourage the children to discuss our Rights.

A short play, 'King Cruel' was performed by the steering group as a fun and interesting way to introduce him to the school. Check out our pictures below!

We've All Got Rights

'We've all got rights' is a fantastic song and animation by children and staff from Crosby High School, a Unicef UK Rights Respecting School in Liverpool.
