Deeply rooted, flourishing together, reaching great heights

Send My Friend To School Campaign 2015

We are taking part in the 'Send My Friend To School' Campaign again this year. Every class has been thinking about how we can persuade world leaders to protect every child's right to an education.

This campaign brings together thousands of children across the UK to speak up for the right to education, and remind world leaders of their promise that all children should get the chance to go to school.

This year we are thinking about what we would do if we were world leaders. We will be writing to our local MP and the Prime Minister to show our support for this cause. The children have shared their work below.

 

 

Global Campaign for Education

Send My Friend to School is run by the UK coalition of the Global Campaign for Education.

Rights Respecting Schools

Horfield CEVC Primary is a Rights Respecting School

We are a Rights Respecting School and we achieved Level 1 of the UNICEF Rights Respecting Award in 2012. The Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) recognises achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) at the heart of a school’s planning, policies, practice and ethos. A rights-respecting school not only teaches about children’s rights but also models rights and respect in all its relationships: between teachers / adults and pupils, between adults and between pupils.

Who is the Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) for?

The RRSA is a UK-wide initiative for all children and all those working with or for children in formal education.

What impact does the RRSA have?

A three year qualitative study by researchers at the Universities of Sussex and Brighton found that "The RRSA has had a profound effect on the majority of the schools involved in the programme."

RRSA and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC)

The universality of the CRC provides a clear link for pupils between building up their rights-respecting school, understanding their rights and the need for children’s rights to be realised everywhere. Children and young people in rights-respecting schools develop a stronger sense of the need to act for global justice.

Respecting Rights at Horfield CEVC Primary School

Two elected class councillors represent each class and form the School Council at the start of each academic year. The School Council also works as the school's Rights Respecting Action Group.

In September, each class works collaboratively to create a Class Charter. The children think carefully about their rights and responsibilities in school. The charters encourage the children to become effective and independent learners.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Black History Month

As part of our learning about Black History, we have thought about how we can protect every child's right to live in a free and peaceful society. Every class has thought carefully about how we can ensure that our school is a peaceful place. We have all decorated doves with our thoughts and reflections.

 

 

 

Green Club

Green Club recently visited the Lime Trees Tesco Store to find out about where the food we buy from the supermarket comes from.

 

 

As a rights respecting school, we learn about the importance of looking after the natural environment. This term, the Green Club and Year 5 have been working hard to create friendly habitats for insects in our school grounds. They have designed and made 'bug hotels'!

Education for all

In 2000, over 180 countries signed up to a set of commitments for a better world to tackle issues such as hunger and poverty. These Millennium Development Goals included a goal of education for all by 2015.

 

Every child at Horfield has taken part in this important campaign. The children have written messages and letters in support of every child’s right to an education. The children’s messages and photographs will be sent to our local MP, Charlotte Leslie.

 

Children have expressed their views as messages on buddy chains. The Key Stage Two classes have also written persuasive letters to our local MP.
