Rights Respecting Schools
Ravenfield Primary Academy is a 'Rights Respecting' School. This means that we teach children about their rights according to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) and model rights and respect in all our relationships. Everyone has human rights to make sure that we are treated properly and fairly and given the freedom to develop to our full potential. There are additional rights that apply only to children because they need additional protection that adults don't.
The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child is an international document that sets out all the rights that children have. The CRC lists 54 articles; while all children have all these rights, in Foundation and Key Stage 1 we concentrate on a limited number which are particularly relevant to children at this age. A copy of our Rights Respecting Booklet can be viewed below:

It is our responsibility to ensure that we respect everyone's rights.
