Rights Respecting School

Cheadle Primary School is a SILVER awarded - Rights Respecting School

At Cheadle Primary School we are extremely proud to be part of the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child, where every child is valued, cared for and developed to their full potential.

Our aims, values and pledge to the UNCRC awarded us the UNICEF Recognition of Commitment to the Rights Respecting Schools Award. In July 2019 we achieved Silver Award for the first time. We reflect the belief that the United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child (CRC) “… gives young people the best chance to grow into respectful, active and resilient citizens.” Please see our (Child friendly articles).

What is a Rights Respecting School?

A rights-respecting school places the UNCRC at the heart of a school’s planning, policies, practice and ethos.

A rights-respecting school is a community where children’s rights are learned, taught, practised, respected, protected and promoted. The school community models rights and respect in all its relationships: between teachers / adults and pupils, between adults and between pupils.

All children are taught to appreciate that they are part of a Global Community and that they should take an active part in that community. Each class has a charter and an article linked to it.
