St Francis' is a school where everyone recognises and acts upon their own rights and responsibilities with respect to the school, the local community and the wider world.
Since September 2011 we have been comitted to becoming a Rights Respecting School and in June 2012 we recieved our 'Record of Commitment.'
Teachers have been making sure children understand the United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child and we have depicted the different Articles set out in the convention through artwork. Parents and friends came into school, helping us to interpret and discuss the rights of children around the world whilst completing a wide range of art and textile work.
Children and adults are working together to realise the rights of the child with respect to the school, the local community and the wider world. We believe that in order "to be the best they can be," children must first develop understanding of their own rights, learning to appreciate and uphold the rights of others. Children learn that with rights come responsibilities.
