We are a Rights Respecting School!

Throughout this site, you will see references to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). The 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.

The Convention must be understood as a whole: all rights are linked and no right is more important than another.

Blaenycwm Primary is a rights respecting school and is committed to achieving gold accreditation.

Article 1: Everyone under the age of 18 has all the rights in the Convention.
