Rights Respecting Schools

At St Joseph's, we are a GOLD Rights Respecting School


The Rights Respecting Schools Award puts children’s rights at the heart of schools in the UK. Unicef works with these schools to create safe and inspiring places to learn, where children are respected and encouraged to be responsible, active citizens.

Right of the Month


October 2021: Article 24- You have the right to the best possible health 


During this month, we celebrate Mental Health Day on Sunday 10th October and the idea that all of our feelings are important. Mental health is just as important as physical health but sometimes harder to understand as we cannot necessarily see when someone is hurting.


Why not create a picture or model of a brain and record the things that make you feel happy and safe? 


Take notice of your surroundings to help boost your mood. The changing season and light can affect everyone’s mood. Why don’t you take a walk after school or at the weekend with your family? Can you notice all the wonderful changes autumn brings? You could write a list of all the things you're thankful for.
