Rights Respecting Schools
During the academic year 2017-18, Cwmfelin will be working towards becoming a Rights Respecting School.
We aim to educate pupils about their rights and help them understand that they have responsibilities too. Our committee will aim to involve staff, pupils, parents and Governors who will work together to develop children's rights in our school.
What is the RRS award?
The Rights Respecting Schools award (RRSA) is an initiative run by Unicef who work with schools in the UK to create safe and inspiring places to learn, where children are respected, their talents are nurtured and they are able to thrive. The Rights Respecting Schools Award embeds these values in daily school life and gives children the best chance to lead happy, healthy lives and to be responsible, active citizens. Our school will place the UN convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) at the heart of our ethos and curriculum.
Super Ambassadors is a scheme from the Children's Commissioner for Wales that aims to promote children's rights and the UNCRC in Primary Schools. Here are our Super Ambassadors who are working hard to ensure that children at Cwmfelin know their rights and responsibilities.
Our school mascot
We held a competition to design a Rights Respecting schools mascot and there were many fantastic entries. All the pupils and staff voted for their favourite design and the winner is......................
Ripley the Rights Respecting Rex.
Congratulations to Reuben Hughes in Class 6 for this creative, colourful design.
