UNICEF Rights Respecting School

LATEST NEWS: UPDATED UNICEF AMBASSADORS ACTION PLAN BELOW.

We have enrolled in UNICEF's Rights representing programme. The aim is to bring children's rights and responsibilities into everyday learning as well as educate our children on the rights of children all around the world.

 

The programme is based on the Articles of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, which applies to all young people under 18.

 

We feel that children's rights are essential to education even for the youngest children and that the programme will contribute to their development in later life.

Takeover Day at St. Ambrose 2017

 Today the children took control of the school. The new headteacher and deputy Headteachers started the day off with an assembly saying what was going to happen today. All of the pupils contributed to the day by teaching the classes using their skills and knowledge, they planned and delivered their brilliant lessons. Whilst this was happening, the new chefs were making the children's school dinner. The food was OUTSTANDING!!!!!! it even rivalled our real chefs. 

 

Examples of children using their rights
