Young Leaders Champion Rights

Rights have been in the spotlight at Moseley Park as youngsters work towards a prestigious national award.

Young leaders have been participating in the Rights Respecting School programme, which is run by UNICEF.

The award, which has several levels, involves students and the school community learning about children’s rights and putting them into practice every day. It aims to ensure schools are safe and inspiring places to learn, where children are respected, their talents are nurtured and they are able to thrive.

Youngsters are currently working towards Level 1 of the Rights Respecting Schools Award, which involves embedding the conventions of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child into the school ethos and curriculum.

Pupil leaders Tyler-Jade Linton-Phillips, Lillian Aboagye, Georgina Williams, Chelsea Ali, Sophie Moreton, Esme Gillett and Hannah Archer have been helping Mr Mincher to deliver key messages through assemblies and PSHE lessons.

Once the school is ready, representatives from UNICEF will assess our progress towards the award.

Mr Mincher said: “Our young leaders have been working hard on this project. It’s all about making sure our students are happy, safe and ready to learn.”
