Rights Respecting School

UNICEF is the world's leading organisation working for children and their rights. In signing the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child all governments have a responsibility to make both children and adults aware of these rights.


We are a Rights respecting School here at Bishop Childs and we will be looking to achieve our silver award in July. This means that children's rights run through everything we do and our school helps our pupils to grow into confident, caring and responsible young citizens both in school and in the wider community.


By learning about their rights our children also learn about the importance of respecting the rights of others, and also understanding the importance of our school values. 

We all have rights. Do you know your rights as a child ?

Our Four Purposes - These characters help us to remember of four purposes in all that we do.

Article 28



I have the right to an education.



Article 28 of the UNCRC says that children and young people have the right to education no matter who they are, regardless of race, gender or disability; if they’re in detention, or if they’re a refugee.


Children and young people have the right to both primary and secondary education, and should be able to choose different subjects when in secondary school. This should include the option of technical and vocational training, so they shouldn’t have to focus on academic subjects if they don't want to.



Know Your Rights

Our Values - These support your rights and we are all responsible for using our values in school and in the community.
