Rights Respecting School
At La Moye Primary School, we aim to be a school where children’s rights are at the heart of our ethos and culture, to improve well-being and to develop every child’s talents and abilities to their full potential. We are a ‘Rights Respecting School’, an award given to schools on behalf of Unicef
UK. We are currently at ‘silver’ level for this and are now working towards our ‘gold’ award.
Unicef is the world’s leading organisation working for children and young people and their rights. In 1989, Governments across the World agreed that all children have the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). These rights are based on what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfil their potential.
La Moye School pupils will learn about their rights by putting them into practice every day. A Rights Respecting School models rights and respect in all its relationships.
