As part of our outright campaign, we invited Chris Bryant into class to ask him questions on how the government is going to improve the health care systems in the Rhondda and the UK. The children came up with thoughtful and mature questions. A huge thank you to Chris who gave us lots of information and shared some proposals on how they were going to achieve this. An even bigger well done to our children for advocating for better health care services for everyone in the Rhondda.

RRSA evidence - Silver Award
The UNICEF UK Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) is based on principles of equality, dignity, respect, non-discrimination and participation. The RRSA seeks to put the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child at the heart of a school’s ethos and culture to improve well-being and develop every child’s talents and abilities to their full potential.
A rights-respecting school is a community where children’s rights are learned, taught, practiced, respected, protected and promoted. Young people and the school community learn about children’s rights by putting them into practice every day.
Our children created their own class charters, incorporating elements of the UN charter for children. Each class talked through their own charter of rights and how these rights also have responsibilities. The charter is agreed in each class and put into practice. Throughout our school and with parents we will create a rights respecting ethos which will add and emphasise the values we already uphold at Trealaw Primary.
Trealaw Primary School are proud to be a SILVER Rights ‘Respecting School’. This is the second highest award given to schools by UNICEF, a leading organisation for children and their rights, we are now working towards the GOLD award. The UNICEF UK Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) Is based on the principles of equality, dignity, respect, non-discrimination and participation. The RRSA seeks to put the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child at the heart of the school’s ethos and culture to improve well-being and develop every child’s talents and abilities to their full potential. Our school is a community where children’s rights are lived, learned and understood.
