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 - November


The ‘Right of the Month’ and 'Wellness Warrior Challenge' is:

Article 38-You have a right to protection in times of war. If you are under 15, you should never have to be in an army or take part in a battle.


During this month we celebrate Remembrance Day on the 11th of November.

This day commemorates the signing of the armistice between the Allies and Germany at 11am on 11 November 1918 – the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. 


What can you do at home? 

You may like to have a discussion about countries where children are affected by war such as Ukraine and Iraq. How do you think war affects children? What could we do to help?
