Rights Respecting


Lessons at Foulds are guided by our agreed key principles. 

As we are a Rights Respecting School, everyday life and learning is led by the core underpinning values of the following articles from the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child:

• Article 2 Children have these rights, no matter who they are, where they live, what their parents do, what language they speak, what their religion is, whether they are a boy or girl, what their culture is, whether they have a disability, whether they are rich or poor. No child should be treated unfairly on any basis.

• Article 28 Children have the right to a good quality education. Children should be encouraged to go to school to the highest level they can.

• Article 29 Children's education should help them use and develop their talents and abilities. It should also help them learn to live peacefully, protect the environment and respect other people.


Each term pupils in each class will be taught additional articles from the UNCRC during their lessons aiming to support their understanding and appreciation of their rights and the rights of others.

Children will also be taught during lessons and assemblies about the core British Values:

•           Democracy

•           The rule of law

•           Individual liberty

•           Mutual respect

•           Tolerance of different faiths and beliefs

The learning objectives and coverage in each year group is linked to current needs and areas of interest and planned for in the half termly Medium Term Plans which are monitored by the Deputy Headteacher.
