‘A truly inclusive school which has rights at its heart’
St Andrew’s CE Primary School is very proud to have been awarded a Level 2 Rights Respecting School Award by Unicef. This is the highest award in this category and is the result of several years’ hard work by staff, children, governors and parents.
The award uses the international UN Convention for the Rights of the Child as a basis to judge the performance of a school, including:
• How safe and valued children feel by each other and teachers
• How actively children are involved in their own learning
• How active children are in making decisions which affect them in the school
• How aware children are of the rights of all children and where these rights are not being met, either locally or internationally.

We have a school council who meet every half term to discuss current projects and ideas. The representatives have been elected by their class peers and the current membership is:
Kingfisher: Daisy and Danny
Owl: Jasmine and Ethan
Sika: Raphie and Luke H
Hedgehog: Zac and Jasper
Otter: Aurelia and Toby
The meetings are supported by Hannah Wilson from the PTFA, Parent, Teacher and Friends Association.
Today we met to all say hello and join together as a School Council. We also elected the following roles:
Publicity- Luke and Jasmine.
We decided that we would talk to the children in our classes to gather their ideas and to decide what we would like to fundraise for this year. We will meet again on Friday 11th October.
