Children’s Rights

Hello! Welcome to the UNICEF Rights Respecting Steering Committee page of the Hambleton School website

What does the Steering Committee do?

The Steering Committee is a group of children who work alongside other children and adults at our school to raise awareness and discussion about children’s rights. Our school has already achieved Level 1 Rights Respecting School accreditation and we are helping to raise awareness amongst more people in our community so that we may achieve Level 2.

Who are we?

The Steering Committee meets usually on a Thursday and has 10 students. These 10 students are: Harry Issatt (Year2) Chloe White (Year2) Adam Styrin (Year 3) Abigail Pilling (Year 3). Joseph Pearson (Year 4) Amy Houlker (Year 5) Martha Peacock (Year 5) Emily Robertson (Year 6) Darcie Edmunds (Year 6) and Jack Baron (Year 6).

What is the Steering Committee doing now?

We are trying to make our community aware of rights respecting by placing plaques around the village. They will have the appropriate rights on; for example at the Village Hall, article 15 – Every child has the right to meet with other children to join groups and organisations. At the moment we are discussing ways in which we can reach Level 2 award in Rights Respecting.

Why are we doing this?

We are trying to make sure that we use rights respecting language in school, so that everyone understands and respects rights no matter who they are. Each week on our school newsletter, we mention an article from a Children’s Pocket Book of Rights by Unicef. Article of the week is chosen by Joseph Pearson and Amy Houlker.

What can you do to help?

Parents; could you help raise awareness? If you have any ideas on how to raise awareness in the community please discuss this with your children then they can pass on any ideas to their class representative. Alternatively, you can contact a member of staff directly. We hope you can help us with some ideas!

Thank you for your co-operation,

The Rights Respecting Steering Committee
