Rights Respecting Ambassadors

at Neyland Community School


Picture: /imgresize/w288/images/bronze-logo.pngThe Rights Respecting Ambassador role involves promoting the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) and ensuring that it is at the heart of the school's policy, practice, curriculum and ethos. Their role involves promoting the fact that everyone is equal and that their good actions and voice are important.

We will have representatives from Years 1 – 6.  Each child who would like to be put forward for class election to be voted in as an ambassador will complete a manifesto.

We will then welcome two representatives from each class to join the pupil voice group.

"Rights" are things that every child should have or be able to do.  All children have the same rights.  These rights are listed in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).

This pupil voice group supports with the following rights:

Article 12 – You have the right to give your opinion, and for adults to listen and take you seriously.

Article 13 – You have the right to find out things and share what you think with others, by talking, drawing, writing or in any other way unless it harms or offends other people.

Article 42 – You have the right to know your rights! Adults should know these rights and help you learn about them, too.

We have achieved our Bronze RRS award recently. 

We are now working towards achieving the Silver RRS award.  Click here to see the 2020-2021 action plan.
