Week Commencing 20th February 2017

We hope that you have an enjoyable half term. I have already heard that some families are off on holiday, some in England and some abroad in search of sun and snow - probably a mixture of both.

We look forward to you arriving back safely to commence school on 27th February when we are ‘off-timetable’ for PSHCE week.

This year our overarching theme is Children’s Rights. We will be focussing some of the 54 articles that cover Children’s Rights.

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, or UNCRC, has 54 articles that cover all aspects of a child’s life and set out the civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights that all children everywhere are entitled to. It also explains how adults and governments must work together to make sure all children can enjoy all their rights.

Every child has rights, whatever their ethnicity, gender, religion, language, abilities or any other status.

All the rights are linked and no right is more important that another. The right to relax and play (Article 31) and the right to freedom of expression (Article 13) have equal importance as the right to be safe from violence (Article 19) and the right to education (Article 28).

Our PSHCE week has lots of different aspects planned and we are looking forward to an interesting week after half term.
