Our Rights Respecting Schools (RRS) lead is Mrs Skinner and she has invited a group of children from Year 2 to Year 6 to represent their class and their school as RRS Ambassadors.
They understand the United Nations Convention for the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) and promote it throughout the school. They are also positive role models for Northwood purpose and values.
They have supported all classes in producing a RRS Charter which ties in with Northwood purpose and values and encourages all children to make good choices, and to take their responsibilities seriously.
The ambassadors work closely with the Rights Respecting focus groups from each class; they hold regular surveys and gather opinions, thoughts and feelings from all pupils so that appropriate changes can be made to improve various situations for all children at Northwood.
Ambassadors organise events to support our local, national and international charities and support Mrs Skinner in many other ways.
The ambassadors, along with Mrs Skinner, present a weekly RRS assembly to keep the rest of the school fully informed about all the initiatives going on in school, and to ensure that the RRS message is kept high profile.
