Pinner Park Junior School: Rights Respecting Rangers

Welcome to our page. The PPJS Rights Respecting Rangers (RRR) meet weekly to evaluate progress and share ideas for moving RRS forward and have led learning walks for visitors, explaining its importance. Our RRR are have a very good knowledge of the UNCRC (United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child). We are all democratically voted by our class to be RRR.

2018-2019 Rights Respecting Rangers
Pinner Park Junior School: Rights Respecting Rangers

In 2015-2016 as Rights Respecting Rangers we will continue to promote and work to support rights across the school:
  • Year 3: Traffic survey/results and presentation; know my rights (rights hunt)
  • Year 4: rights in the community (a walk around the community to find out how our rights are being met) watch out local MP!
  • Year 5: feeding back to parents (coffee morning planned) plus media team for year 3 traffic survey
  • Year 6: Healthy Me Campaign...seeing as we have previously done local (park charter) and national (Outright campaign for UNICEF) campaigns, this year we are running a school campaign. The children are working on a display for the hall.
Community Work
We have done some rights respecting work within the local community. For example, through its support for the Harrow food bank, at a Grandparents' tea party to celebrate the school's 80th anniversary, and at the cluster schools Carol concert.

PPJS Rights Respecting Rangers have campaigned for the local council to adopt a charter to promote children's rights in the local park. Each year we participate in Anti-bullying week activities, and took part in discussions about the new pound coin design through 'Pupils in Parliament'. For UNICEF's Outright campaign, we were leaders in carrying out 25 random acts of kindness to celebrate the Convention's 25th anniversary.

Global Citizens
As global citizens we have looked at the 'Right to Rights' for all children across the world and in particular for our friends in our link school, Masindi Public School in Uganda. Through reciprocal visits with its 'Connecting Classrooms' partner school in Masindi, Uganda, the school has agreed and signed a joint action plan focusing on the Convention, and how it supports high quality teaching and learning.

We also support Masindi in fundraising to improve the school environment. So far we have helped them raise money for new toilet blocks and at the moment we are raising monies for a new roof, windows and doors throughout the school.

From 2018/19 PPJS will be supporting Red Earth Foundation — an organisation which supports and promotes high standards of teaching and learning across a number of African Countries – reaching thousands of children and hundreds of teachers.
