Rights Respecting Schools Ambassadors
SJSJ prides itself as a rights-respecting school as every child is valued, heard, and has an understanding of their rights within and out of school. The RRS Ambassadors are a group of driven, bold, and compassionate children from each year group who have been selected by their peers to be RRS representatives for the school. These children care about the rights of each child and will work closely with Miss Bah to generate ways we can support the children in our school by understanding and exercising their rights. This team will ensure that pupils are recognised when they are seen exercising their rights through receiving rights respecting awards. They will also ensure that all pupils take part in charity events and take pride in supporting the wider community through celebrated days like Children in Need and Red Nose Day. Our RRS Ambassadors understand the importance of community and will strive to keep good relations with the local community and continue supporting other children and families.
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.
