Rights Respecting School

Rights Respecting School

We are a Gold Rights Respecting School


In 2018 we began our Rights Respecting journey. We achieved Bronze in January 2019, Silver in June 2021 and Gold in May 2023. 



We are the Rights Ambassadors 




Our job is to make sure that the rest of the school know all about the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.  Mrs Aziz is helping us be agents of change and advocates for children's rights locally and globally.


Our aims are to:

  • Celebrate the World Children's Day 2022
  • Ensure each class has a rights' charter as part of their class needs
  • Ensure all classroom curriculum displays show the rights related to the learning we are doing
  • Work closely with Mrs Aziz and all the Duty Bearers in our Mount Stuart community to protect, respect and fulfil the rights of all the children as rights holders

We are the Super Ambassadors

As Super Ambassadors we have three jobs. They are to:

  • Inform other pupils in the school about the Children's Commissioner for Wales and her powers
  • Make sure other pupils know about children’s rights under the UNCRC.
  • Do special missions for the Commissioner in our school

We are becoming a Unicef UK Rights Respecting School!


Mount Stuart Primary School aims to be a school where children’s rights are at the heart of our ethos and culture, to improve well-being and to develop every child’s talents and abilities to their full potential.  As part of this plan we are working towards recognition as a ‘Rights Respecting School’, an award given to schools on behalf of Unicef UK.


Unicef is the world’s leading organisation working for children and young people and their rights. In 1989, governments across the world agreed that all children have the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). These rights are based on what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfil their potential.


Our pupils will learn about their rights by putting them into practice every day. A Rights Respecting School models rights and respect in all its relationships.


We really hope that you will be able to support our school on our journey towards becoming a Unicef UK Rights Respecting School. You could find a bit more about the Convention on the Rights of the Child by visiting
