We are very proud to be part of the UNICEF UK Rights Respecting Award scheme. Participating in the award scheme provides us, as a school, the platform to demonstrate our commitment to promoting the United Nation Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). We encourage all of our pupils, families and school community to learn about children's rights and how we can use those rights on a daily basis.
Brackla Primary has already achieved the bronze award which acknowledges our commitment to promoting children's rights. We are now actively working towards gaining the silver award, where we provide evidence of the impact our commitment to children's rights has had on the school as a whole.

Our new rights and values - written By James Samuel, Oskar Williams, Melissa Hughes and Evelyn Hamel
On 21st September, we had a discussion with Mrs John about changing some of the values and rights. We decided on having some new values and new rights for the year ahead such as generosity, creativity, kindness, and thoughtfulness. We mixed up some of the values from last year and added some new ones.
Each month, we will be focussing on a new right and value. The rights will be explored in assemblies and in classrooms, with Headteacher awards being given to children that have been nominated by their class teachers.
Our values and rights for the year are below:
Your right to meet with friends and join groups and clubs
Your right to follow your own religion
Your right to say what you think should happen and be listened to
Your right to a house, food and clothing
You have a right to life and grow up to be healthy
You should not be harmed and you should be looked after and kept safe
Your right to a name and nationality
Everyone who works with children should always do what is best for each child
Your right to relax and play
Your right to become the best you can be
All children should be treated equally
