Rights Respecting School Council

Rights Respecting School Council @ CRC 

We are proud to be a ‘Rights Respecting School’ and achieved our RRSA  ‘Level One’ in 2015.

The Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) recognises achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) at the heart of a school’s planning, policies, practice and ethos. A rights-respecting school not only teaches about children’s rights but also models rights and respect in all its relationships: between teachers / adults and pupils, between adults and between pupils.

Our Mascot

i deer

Here is Mr I. Deer! He is our RRS mascot and was designed by a former pupil, Nia Francis-Davies, who won a competition to design a RRS mascot for Cwmrhydyceirw Primary. Mr I. Deer plays a big part in our school and reminds us of our rights on a daily basis.

Our RRS School Council

We are the ‘Rights Respecting School Council’. We meet on a weekly basis to ensure that children’s rights are respected in our school. We are also the voice of the school and work closely with staff and pupils to make our school a better place! Each week, we choose 1 child in our school who has been seen respecting the rights of others to receive our Mr I. Deer award and this is given out in our whole school ‘Seren yr Wythnos’ assembly each Friday.

 ‘Article 12 of the UNCRC – your right to be listened to and have your opinion respected.’

Year 1 – Pippa

Children’s Rights in Wales
