The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child is a statement of children’s rights. It has 54 articles that cover all areas of a child’s life and sets out the political, civil, economic, social and cultural rights that all children are entitled to. Created in 1989 and ratified into law in the UK in 1992, this convention looks to protect children to ensure that they have the best chance at life possible.


Achieving the Rights Respecting Schools award isn’t just about proving that we’ve completed a task or covered set criteria – it’s a commitment to place the rights of the child at the centre of all that we do in all areas of school life. In doing this, children become aware of their rights and are better able to understand their place in their school, local community and the world, while also being able to advocate for themselves and their rights.

What Parents Need To Know:

You may hear your child talk about some of these rights – here are the bits that may come up at home and are important for you to know. The charter applies to all children under the age of 18, all over the world.

All of the rights in the charter are important and linked – no right is more important than another! However, all of the articles in the UNCRC link back to just four articles. These articles are known as the ‘General Principles’ of the charter and play a key role in ensuring that all rights in the Convention are met for children.


It's also important to know the ABCDE of Rights:
