Rights Respecting Award

Our Current Focus


Article 29 

Your education should help you use and develop your talents and abilities. It should also help you learn to live peacefully, protect the environment and respect other people.

Article 42 (Knowledge of the rights)

Governments should make the Convention known to adults and children. Adults should help children learn about their rights, too. 


Article 29 (Goals of education)

Children's education should develop each child's personality, talents and abilities to the fullest. It should encourage children to respect others, human rights and their own and others' cultures. It should also help them learn to live peacefully, protect the environment and respect other people.


Old Cleeve School was awarded its Level 1 Rights Respecting School Award (now named silver award) on the 8th February 2017. We are currently working towards achieving our Gold Award. 



What is Rights Respecting School all about?

A rights-respecting school is a community where children are taught about the rights and through the rights. We also teach the children how to be ambassadors for the rights of others. Young people and the school community learn about children’s rights by putting them into practice every day. 

Classroom Charters

Each class has developed their own classroom charters as a guide for the children to follow alongside our behaviour policy. 

The children developed the charters as a class. Every classroom displays their class charter, which is linked in with our work on children's rights.

Alternatively, please see the link below to view each current class charter.
