UNICEF is the world's leading organisation working for children and their rights. In 1989, Governments worldwide promised all children the same rights by adopting the UN Convention for the Rights of the Child. These rights are based on what the child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfil their potential. They apply equally to every child, regardless of who they are, or where they are from. 

UNICEF UK's Rights Respecting School Award (RRSA) is an initiative leading to an award which recognises achievement in putting the Convention at the heart of the school's planning, policies, practices and ethos. 

At Burry Port Primary School, we work hard on promoting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. The universal rights of children are enshrined in the United Nations Declaration of the Rights of the Child. We are a Rights Respecting School and are working towards achieveing the level 1 award. 

‘A Rights Respecting School teaches children and young people that they have rights under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. From this starting point they also learn their responsibility to respect others' rights in all relationships in the community.' (UNICEF) 

We have selected Rights to focus on each month.
