JB Article 12 Ambassadors 

   We are a GOLD UNCIEF Rights Respecting school.

 

We are proud of our strong, positive ethos that is embedded through the school's application and involvement with UNICEF Rights of the Child.

Article 3: The best interests of the child must be a top priority in all decisions and actions that affect children.

Article 14: Every child has the right to think and believe what they choose and also to practise their religion, as long as they are not stopping other people from enjoying their rights. Governments must respect the rights and responsibilities of parents to guide their child as they grow up.

Article 28: Every child has the right to an education. Primary education must be free and different forms of secondary education must be available to every child. Discipline in schools must respect children’s dignity and their rights. Richer countries must help poorer countries achieve this.

 

The John Bramston Article 12 Ambassadors are currently:

Article 12 Champs(1)

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC)

In 1989, our world leaders came together on the 20th November and made a set of promises for every child on Earth. The UNCRC is an international statement of all of those promises. The UK signed the convention on April 19th 1990, ratified it on December 16th 1991 and it came into force on January 15th 1992.

UNICEF protects and promotes these rights. These rights try to make sure that every child is healthy, receives an education, treated fairly and always listened to. They also make sure that all children are safe and protected from violence, abuse and exploitation. To learn more about the UNCRC, click on the links below.
