Article 2 - Children all around the world have these rights no matter what!

Therefore, we have the responsibility not to take anyone’s rights away from them.

 

The Rights Knights at Marshfield Primary School work throughout the school to promote children’s rights and make sure that everyone respects each other’s rights. We are very proud to be part of a Rights Respecting School!

 

Remember, with every right comes a responsibility!

 

We meet once a week to discuss our current agenda. We are always working hard to promote rights throughout the school. Watch out for us around the school we are always on the lookout for rewarding pupils who are respecting other people's rights! We also have our mascot, Russell the Rights Respecting Rucksack, who is packed full of the right stuff! You will find him throughout the school reminding us all of our rights and responsibilities, as well as showing the links between topics we are learning about in school and our rights!

 

Below are important Articles from the United Nations Convention of the child which we feel are particularly important to respect in our school.
