At St Margaret’s at Hasbury we have achieved our level 1 Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA).

The award recognises that the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child is at the heart of our school’s planning, policies, practice and ethos. As a rights-respecting school we not only teach children about their rights but as adults we model respect for each other in all our relationships. As well as being taught about their rights, our pupils are taught about their responsibilities to each other in school and as citizens of the global community.

Our rights respecting area
You can see these principles in practice in school in many ways:
  • Our displays which reflect the commitment of all to respect the rights of children
  • Our class codes of conduct – drawn up by teachers and children - which demonstrate clearly how these rights can be met
  • The positive relationships between adults, between adults and children, and between children themselves
  • The support that children show for each other regardless of their differences
  • The positive part that children play in decision making in school and in their own learning
