Team Bangabandhu - Our Pupil Voice

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!

Pupil Voice

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.

Working to make our school the best it can be!

At Bangabandhu our children take charge of our school.  It is their school; they are proud of it and they work hard to ensure it is a great place for everyone to be.  They have many roles and responsibilities and here are some of them.

Each year a variety of roles and responsibilities are advertised.  They children do written applications, making sure they read the job description and meet the selection criteria.  They are shortlisted, go through a robust interview process and if they are successful, they get the job.  Once appointed they meet their line manager, receive some training and then they start their jobs; just like the real world of work.  They definitely earn their jobs and this is excellent preparation for the future.

What a team!
