Rights Respecting Team 2019/20
Hello! We are the members of the Rights Respecting Team at Chilton Academy. Our main role is to champion the rights of all the pupils in our school when they are in school and the community. Some of us have been members for several years and some of us are new to the group.
We all believe that every pupil has the right to learn and be successful and safe in school. We will therefore make sure that when they come to school, everyone is cared for and given the best education! If pupils feel they need help – we are the ones to ask!
We also believe that pupils around the world have the same rights as we do. Over the year, we will lead different projects to make a difference around the world. We will make sure our voices are heard and do what we can to strengthen the voices of other children globally!

Summer 2018/Autumn 2018 Term Events
During the summer term, we took part in the Send My Friend to School campaign. This year’s campaign was linked to making schools safe for children all over the world. During an assembly, we discussed what a safe school might look like and highlighted how some schools might not be safe to get to or safe when children are there. In class, children created their own signs for a safe school.
There have been various assemblies with links to different articles to promote RR within school. We covered Article 19 – You should not be harmed and have the right to be kept safe through a world peace day assembly. Through world teachers day assembly we covered Article 1 – Everyone under 18 has the rights set out in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. Article 3 – All organisations concerned with children should work towards what is best for each child. Article 29 – Your education should help you use and develop your talents and abilities. It should also help you learn to live peacefully, protect the environment and respect other people.
This year for harvest we set ourselves a target of collecting 50 cans for the food bank, through fantastic donations we exceeded this and had 286 to donate.

The ‘R’ Team
The Chilton Charter:
The ‘R’ team work closely with Mrs Cornwell to ensure that Chilton Academy is a rights respecting school. The children devised a Chilton Charter so that our local area could become more involved. We visited the town council offices and other local businesses.
Article 38 Conference
Some of our Y6 children were invited to a conference which focused on Article 38 – ‘Governments must do everything they can to protect and care for children affected by war. Governments must not allow children under the age of 15 to take part in war or join the armed forces’.
Day for change
The ‘R’ Team led an assembly informing the school about the typhoon in the Philippines. As a school, we decided that we would like to help the children over there. We brought in loose change and managed to raise enough money to buy 2 ‘schools in a box’ which supported children’s education in the Philippines.
