A Rights Respecting School teaches children and young people that they have rights under the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. From this starting point they also learn their responsibilty to respect others' rights in all relationships in the community. The ethos created demonstrates to children the inclusiveness of a rights-respecting school and paves the way to participation in the life of the community. This in turn helps them to learn how to formulate, express/listen to opinions, helping to raise their achievement. They learn to be outward-looking active global citizens.
