Rights Respecting School & British Values

Rights Respecting School Intent


Our Lady of Lourdes RC Primary School is a Rights Respecting School. Our vision is to bring children to a place where they can realise their full potential. Our Christian values are the foundations of all we do linking closely to the Rights of all children. In 1989 the world made a set of promises for every child on earth. The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child is an International Statement of all those promises, listing 42 articles which apply to all children around the world. UNICEF protects and promotes those rights. Schools are asked to share these Rights with their pupils to raise awareness and highlight the importance of consolidating our own place within the larger world.


The aim of the Rights Respecting Award is to ensure pupils feel safe, inspired and respected, their talents are nurtured and they are able to thrive. These values and embedded in the daily life of the school and gives children the best chance to lead happy, healthy lives and to be responsible, active citizens. We currently hold the Bronze award and are working towards achieving our Silver Status award.


Classrooms have a Class Charter recognising their personal rights and how they will show respect towards others in achieving these rights. There are Articles displayed in the classrooms which the children discuss and explore to raise their awareness of this cause and to build their understanding of their input with the Convention for all children. Every class has an Ambassador who acts as their representative. They attend regular meetings; form a communication route between the adults in the school and their class and help to develop the status we hold as a school dedicated to the needs of all children.


Children are part of the decision making in our school. The school works for the good of the children and their thoughts and opinions are a necessary component in school dynamic.
