Event description

Description

“Schools should promote the fundamental British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.” OFSTED

Do you want to improve:


  • pupils understanding of values including British values?
  • self esteem and well-being?
  • relationships, behaviour and pupil voice?
  • engagement in learning?
  • positive attitudes and tolerance to diversity?
  • enhanced moral understanding?

St Mary’s embed British Values into everyday school life through the development of a Rights Respecting Ethos. Find out more about the ethos and impact of this approach and gain ideas to take back to your own school in this half day workshop.




The Unicef UK Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) supports schools across the UK to embed children's rights into the school ethos and culture. St Mary’s has found this approach central to embedding British Values into everyday school life. Through embedding the RRSA ethos we provide every opportunity to support our children in ‘being the best that they can be’ (Article 29).

The RRSA ethos provided St Mary’s children with further opportunities to develop life skills, enhance achievement and become model citizens, making a key contribution to our teaching and modelling of British Values. British Value themes such as democracy, responsibility as citizens and mutual respect are fundamental to the curriculum and a key part of the Rights Respecting ethos.

Becoming an RRSA School has also had impact at St Mary's in areas such as:

• improved self esteem and well-being
• a stronger understanding of British values
• improved relationships and behaviour
• a maximised engagement in learning
• positive attitudes and tolerance to diversity
• enhanced moral understanding

This workshop includes:
• a tour around St Mary’s school, demonstrating the impact of the RRSA ethos and environment.
• observation of a Rights Respecting School assembly.
• a presentation from the St Mary’s UNICEF team on pupil voice.
• input from the RRSA Co-ordinator on how to develop an RRSA approach in your school (short and long term).
• advice on how to link RRSA to the curriculum and all aspects of school life
• a demonstration of an RRSA lesson.


What visitors said ……. “It is amazing to see how rights and values are underpinning all the work in school. I can see the impact it is having. I want that impact at my school” Head teacher

This workshop clearly demonstrates how it is possible to develop a whole school commitment and approach to being a Rights Respecting School. Truly inspirational! Head Teacher
