aka the 'Rights Rangers'!
Our Citizenship Steering Group was formed in the Spring Term of 2017.
This group consists of representatives from each KS2 classroom.
The group's main focus is the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and how this can be promoted at TYY.
This group is helping TYY work towards the Rights Respecting School Award .
The Citizenship Steering Group or 'Rights Rangers' as they have called themselves, have chosen 3 rights that they would like to focus on this half term ( they have shared this with all children in assembly):
article 19 (protection from violence, abuse and neglect)
Governments must do all they can to ensure that children are protected from all forms of violence, abuse, neglect and bad treatment by their parents or anyone else who looks after them.
The NSPCC will be visiting school on July 12th to support this:

article 23 (children with a disability)
A child with a disability has the right to live a full and decent life with dignity and, as far as possible, independence and to play an active part in the community. Governments must do all they can to support disabled children and their families.
The group are still planning how to promote this article.
article 30 (children from minority or indigenous groups)
Every child has the right to learn and use the language, customs and religion of their family, whether or not these are shared by the majority of the people in the country where they live.
