This webpage has been designed by children sitting on the Rights Respecting Schools Steering Group. We hope you like it and enjoy our important messages.
As a school, we are hoping to promote the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). The children have been learning all about their rights, such as,
Article 15 – ‘you have the right to choose your own friends’.
Recently at Hatton Hill, we achieved Recognition of Commitment (ROC) for the Rights Respecting Schools Award. We are now working towards our level 1 accreditation.
Pupils from Key Stage 2 have established a Rights Respecting Schools steering group. This aims to provide the children with ambassadors for the promotion of children’s rights. They launched a logo competition, where received entries from all over the school! The winning design was selected to represent our work promoting the rights of every child around the world. Thank you to all of the students who took part in the competition and big congratulations to Harry and Isabel.
Each classroom has now created their own ‘Class Charter’ to ensure that all children learn within a safe and happy environment, accessible to all.
Here are some of the displays:
To continue the promotion the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) we must show evidence of global citizenship. At Hatton Hill we give great consideration to children around the world who are far less fortunate than us. Therefore, our Rights Respecting Schools Steering group have decided to sponsor a child who does not have the same opportunities as us, through CompassionUK.
We have chosen to sponsor a boy living in Ghana. This is Samuel Quainco, he is 6 years old and lives with his Grandmother. He is an only child and helps his Grandmother with household errands. For fun, Samuel likes to sing and play football. We will keep in regular contact with Samuel through letters.
As a school we must raise £25.00 a month to enable the sponsorship. Each class will have a donation pot where any donations will gratefully be received. We have worked out that if every child at Hatton Hill could donate 8p a month, we will, as a community, ensure that Samuel can be fed, educated and better provided for.
