RRSA - Rights Respecting Schools Award
At Old Basing Infant School we are a Gold level Rights Respecting School. We were assessed in October 2021 by a UNICEF appointed assessor. The aim of the RRE (rights respecting education) curriculum is to help children in achieving their potential and to become responsible citizens who respect others and are actively engaged in their communities.
Below is the report we received following our assessment in November 2021.
In 1991 the United Nations met and created a Convention on the Rights of the Child. This is made up of 54 articles, which set out the entitlement of all children across the world. It also specifies that the Government, Parents, Carers and any organisations concerned with children will have a responsibility to ensure these rights are provided.
(Articles 3&4) A full list of the articles can be downloaded at the bottom of this page.
Supporting Your Child at Home with RRE
To support your child's home learning we have adapted a booklet provided by Unicef looking at children's rights. The booklet below contains a number of activities that can be completed with your child to support the learning they have been doing in school. There is also a parent booklet to provide a little more information on the UNCRC and some helpful tips for completing the activities with your child.
There are a number of other ways you can support your child with RRE at home.
Take time to discuss with your child what rights they have been learning about at school.
Look at the scrolling message on our website and discuss the article of the week with your child. There will be some suggested activities on this page that you could complete with your child.
Discuss ideas with your child and make connections with home, the community and the wider world.
