Whinfield Primary School has developed a curriculum which is progressive and informative to help the children understand what they are entitled to as a child. Whinfield uses and refers to the UNICEF Rights of the Child Convention, which is unconditional, universal, indivisible, inalienable and inherent. This will help children become ambitious and is aimed at giving all pupils the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life.
In RRSA the whole school approach has been designed very carefully in conjunction with all staff to ensure that the knowledge and skills are taught in a sequential order from EYFS to KS1 through to KS2 which will ensure pupils know more and remember more.
At Whinfield, with advice from UNICEF UK who provide the Rights of the Child Charter and from locality data, the articles have been planned and combined with PSHE to create an age appropriate, spiralling broader PSHE curriculum to suit the needs of the children in our school. Each Key Stage follows the whole school plans and learns similar topics at a similar time of year. There are four key areas of impact for children at Whinfield as a Rights Respecting school; wellbeing, participation, relationships and self-esteem.
As a Rights Respecting School we make sure our approach goes beyond the school gates, making a positive impact on the whole community.
- Children are healthier and happier
- Children feel safe
- Children have better relationships
- Children become active and involved in school life and the wider world .
