HAMBROUGH is a GOLD Rights Respecting School

HAMBROUGH IS A GOLD “RIGHTS RESPECTING SCHOOL” – July 2017

The staff of Hambrough Primary School believe in helping children to both fulfil their potential in academic performance and to enjoy and succeed in their creative, expressive and sporting activities. We hope they will grow into young people who have the emotional capability to cope with their next steps once they leave our care. “Rights Respecting School Award” is continuing to help our pupils “REACH” these goals. We are delighted to inform that we have achieved the final step towards this goal by attaining the GOLD “Rights Aware” status. We are now working towards raising awareness of the 17 “Global Goals” within ourselves and the wider community.

The “Rights Respecting School Award” (RRSA) is presented to schools on behalf of UNICEF which is the world’s leading organisation working for the rights of children. In 1989 governments worldwide promised all children the same rights by adopting the UN convention are rooted in what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfil their potential.

Gaining the “Rights Respecting School Award” has helped our pupils to grow into confident, caring and responsible young citizens both in school and within their wider community. By teaching our children about their rights and the resulting responsibilities and by encouraging them to reflect on the outcomes of their actions we have fostered a positive environment where our pupils are safe and able to succeed and learn to their highest potential.

Our school is also a part of the “Outreach Campaign” 2018, run by the UNICEF. Outreach empowers children and young people to realise their own rights and to speak out in support of the rights of all children. This year Outright is focusing on air pollution and protecting children’s right to health and a safe, clean environment. We need your support to empower children and young people to stand up for clean air. Outright starts in September with a key day of celebration on 20th November, World Children’s Day and continues until April/May. Donations collected from a Mufty Day held on the launch of the 2018 Outreach Campaign were sent to UNICEF UK.

AND WHY CLEAN AIR?

The reason Hambrough decided to be a part of the Outreach Campaign 2018 to raise awareness with it’s pupils and the local community:

  • One third of all children in the UK live in areas with the most harmful air pollution
  • Article 24 of the UNCRC states that every child has the right to the best possible health

P10401881040202 amended for webP1040201

Raising Money for Charity

We are raising money this year for 3 charities.

Our local charity is the Ealing Food Bank

Our national charity  for 18/19 is Comic Relief

Our international charity is UNICEF

APRIL 2019 - Our Junior Global Ambassadors entered a Video Competition run by the Local Authority to encourage families to travel healthily and reduce poor air quality

Hambrough became silent and raised money for UNICEF  to raise awareness of all the children around the world who have no voice.
