UNICEF Rights Respecting Award

At Thornton Primary School we have achieved the UNICEF Rights Respecting Award Level One. Our School Council and our staff have helped to create an action plan for the whole school! In 1989, governments worldwide promised all children the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. These rights are based on what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfill their potential and apply to every child under the age of 18. Please see the links below for more information on the Convention.

So far last year, each class made a Class Charter of their rights and actions, which our School Council have monitored and given feedback to classes. Also some children attended teacher's planning sessions to input into the school's curriculum and activities.

As part of our curriculum children also learn about the Rights in a number of subjects, including Dot.com - our PSHE lessons, English lessons and history lessons.
