At Brettenham, all of our classes display a child rights-based charter. These charters aim to support a positive learning environment for our children. It is a framework for both adults and children on how to respect each other's rights. A class charter not only provides an opportunity to learn about specific articles from the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), but helps to establish and build shared values and relationships for creating a rights respecting ethos in the classroom and across a school context.
'Rights are for all children and young people throughout the world (universal), are there at birth (inherent), cannot be taken away (inalienable), do not come with any conditions attached to them (unconditional) and are all equally important (indivisible).' UNICEF
