Unicef Rights Respecting Schools
Unicef- Rights Respecting Schools Award
The Rights Respecting Schools Award puts children’s rights at the heart of schools in the UK.
Darnhall Primary School is proud to be working with UNICEF to create a safe and inspiring place to learn, where children are respected, their talents are nurtured and they are able to thrive.
UNICEF's Rights Respecting Schools Award embeds these values in daily school life and gives children the best chance to lead happy, healthy lives and to be responsible, active citizens.
We have now been awarded the Bronze Award Level. So a big well done to everyone and we are really looking forward to continuing our journey to silver when school re-opens fully again.
Each month we explore and learn about a different article from the CRC - The Convention of the Rights of the Child. This month we are looking at articles 2 and 13.
Here are some activities for you to enjoy and learn more about the rights of the child.
Read the story Elmer the Elephant, you can also watch it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rp7S1drKzEk. Elmer didn’t feel that he wanted to be the same as the other elephants. Think of ways that we can celebrate our differences like the elephants do on ‘Elmer Day’ – talk about your ideas with an adult.
The LGBTQ+ Rainbow Progress Pride Flag is a symbol of inclusion and diversity. Look up these two words and think about the link with rights such as Article 2 – non-discrimination. Write a poem about all these ideas called Rainbows and Rights or Design a Rights Respecting Inclusive Flag explaining what each colour and symbol means to you.
