The RRS steering group is a dedicated team of pupils, teachers, TAs, governors and parents. We aim to promote an understanding of the UNCRC rights of the child within the SJSJ community. The group as a whole aims to promote a mutual respect between children and adults as well as develop an increased awareness of global issues. The steering group children (children from Years 1 to 6) meet fortnightly to discuss how to promote the rights in our school.
At SJSJ, our focus rights are:
Article 12 – Every Child has the right to give your opinion and for an adult to listen and take it seriously.
Article 14 – Every child has the right to choose their own religion and beliefs.
Article 19 – Every child has the right to be protected from being hurt and mistreated, in body or in mind.
Article 24 – Every child has the right to the best health care possible, safe water to
drink, nutritious food and a clean and safe environment.
Article 28 – Every child has the right to a good quality education.
Article 29 – Every child has the right to use and develop their talents and abilities.
Article 31 – Every child has the right to relax, rest and play.
These are our RRS Team for this academic year:
