Rights Respecting Schools Association (R.R.S.A)
The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) sets out the rights of every person under 18 and how those rights should be met. These include:
• The right to good quality health care, clean water and nutritious food.
• The right take part in a wide range of cultural and artistic activities
• The responsibility of governments to protect children from dangerous work that might harm their health or education.
The Rights Respecting School Award (RRSA) is an initiative run by UNICEF to raise the awareness of children’s rights. At Trinity Primary we embrace the UNICEF values and embed the CRC into our curriculum as widely as possible through the learning and teaching in all areas of the curriculum.
For further information on the CRC and the work carried out by Unicef you can visit their website.
