Trafalgar School is a Rights Respecting School

All children on this planet are born with 54 different Rights. UNICEF – the world’s leading Children’s Charity – have named these rights ‘Articles’. Children do not have to “earn” or “gain” these rights – they are theirs from birth (Article 1 – Everyone under the age of 18 has all the rights in the convention) You can find out about all 54 Rights here: https://www.unicef.org.uk/what-we-do/un-convention-child-rights/

At Trafalgar, we want to make sure every child knows their rights and ensure that we all act in a way that means ALL are able to receive these at all times. (Article 3 – The best interests of the child must be a top priority in all decisions and actions that affect children)

To celebrate our dedication to this, we have been awarded by UNICEF the RRSA recognition of commitment badge – meaning UNICEF understand just how hard we work at Trafalgar to ensure every child’s rights are being met.

Even more exciting is the fact that, this year, we are aiming for our Silver RRSA Award – so you can expect to see more exciting events like the following:
