Teaching about rights at Hillcross Primary School

Becoming a Rights Respecting school supports our children in achieving their potential and becoming responsible global citizens. Our integrated curriculum helps children learn respect for self and others, as well as the critical thinking skills needed for adults in the 21st century. It is also designed for teaching children how to make informed decisions and understand our role in supporting others.

We have embedded children’s rights within our teaching, ethos and school policies. We believe that the principles and values of being a Rights Respecting School has positive impact on the children’s learning, the school and wider community. Children and adults have an in depth understanding of children’s rights and the UNCRC through an embedded curriculum, learning within PSHE lessons and in whole school assemblies. The children at Southwark Park know that they are Rights Holders and that adults are Duty Bearers. Our pupils are able to use rights-respecting language within lessons and outside of school and are aware that the rights of the child relate to children around the world.
