Rights Respecting School & Our Pupil Voice/Responsibilities
We are a Rights Respecting School
At Bangabandhu, we are proud to be a Rights Respecting School.
The Rights Respecting School Award (RRSA) is all about making sure that our children and young people know and understand their rights and develop as global citizens by learning to respect the rights of others. As a Rights Respecting School we put the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) at the heart of our policies and practice.
We are Rights Respecting!
Our children know that they have the right to be heard in those decisions which affect them (Article 12) and that we value their contributions.
Children from Years 3-6 are invited to apply for the posts of a ‘Rights Respecting School Ambassador’.
The children are invited to submit written applications for the posts, making it clear what they feel they could bring to the post and what they see their role within school and the wider community being.
The Ambassadors meet regularly to discuss ideas and projects to support the school community in its Rights Respecting work. They hold class meetings to find out about issues the children in our school feel strongly about and ensure they involve all children in any consultations.
