“Rights" are things every child should have or be able to do. All children have the same rights. These rights are listed in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Almost every country has agreed to these rights. All the rights are connected to each other, and all are equally important. Sometimes, we have to think about rights in terms of what is the best for children in a situation, and what is critical to life and protection from harm. As you grow, you have more responsibility to make choices and exercise your rights.
This month we are learning about:
Article 12 - You have the right to give your opinion, and for adults to listen and take it seriously.
Teachers and Staff will be looking out for pupils and adults recognising Article 12 as we go about our daily routines in class and in the playground.
