Rights Respecting Schools

At Langafel we are working towards achieving ‘The Rights Respecting Schools Award’ (RRSA) which 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.
