"April 2015:

Following a rigorous assessment at the end of the Spring Term, we are
delighted to confirm that PPJS has achieved Level 2 of this highly valued
award. Ably led by Ms Mendonca, and the Rights Respecting Rangers, the
assessment team was hugely impressed by the way rights respecting underpins so
many core values of our school community. If you would like to read the Unicef assessment
report and understand how 'Rights Respecting' is embedded in our school ethos, please click on the report below."

Pinner Park Junior School: Rights Respecting

"It was particularly notable that the school's ethos based on the Convention, has developed a necessary and
valued sense of community, inclusion, and continuity, in the local community.

The values and principles of the Convention are put into practice in the daily life of the school. Evidence for
this can be gleaned from the learning behaviours of pupils through to curriculum development. The school
uses the Convention to underpin its work locally and globally."
Level 1 report.

Pinner Park Junior School: Rights Respecting

Every child under 18 has these rights. They have the right to know their rights and as duty-bearers, we take this very seriously. Children have the right to say what they think and be listened to- pupil voice is a strength of our school. Young people are empowered to take action on issues they see as important. We help them to bring about change in a safe and welcome environment.

So far we have raised enough money to build new toilets in our link school, Masindi Public School (in Uganda); we have created a Park Charter for Headstone Park; we have 'pitched' being a Rights Respecting School to a nearby high school and involved our elderly community by hosting a Grandparents' Tea to celebrate our 80th Anniversary last March. In addition, we have donated to the Harrow Foodbank by holding a food amnesty and even run Family Learning classes so that we can include different members of our community in our learning!

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child is an international document that sets out all the rights that children have. The CRC lists 54 articles. At Pinner Park we help children to enjoy many of their rights, especially their right to a good quality education that develops their personal excellence (Article 29).
