Class teachers worked with the children in their classes to look at displays and add articles which linked them to the Rights of the Child.
In February 2018 we successfully achieved the first stage of the RRSA. We are now Bronze-Rights Committed.
Stranton Primary School had a visit from Gillian, the Parliament’s Education Outreach Officer. Gillian delivered an assembly on understanding of democracy, parliament and citizenship.

Mrs. Yildirim delivered a staff meeting to inform staff about the Rights Respecting School Award and look at what actions that we need to put in place in order to apply for the Recognition of Commitment (ROC).
The Rights Respecting School Award (RRSA) is an initiative run by UNICEF UK, which encourages schools to place the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child at the heart of its ethos and curriculum. This means that we teach children about their rights according to the United Nations Convention.
Stranton Primary School are currently working towards the first part of the award which is the Recognition of Commitment (ROC). We have put together a steering group who will help to work towards the award and have a RRSA display board up in school.
