Rights Respecting Schools

In 2021, Hautlieu celebrated achieving our Silver award for a Unicef Rights Aware school. This academic year, we hope you’ll join us (parents and students) in our community effort to go for Gold! 

We want you to be aware of, and involved, in our activities: campaigning, fundraising and raising awareness of rights issues, locally and abroad; improving respect for rights within our school (particularly those on our school charter); and teaching others about the UNCRC (United Nations Convention for the Rights of the Child). You can read a summary of the convention here or watch the video below explaining them produced by the School of Social Sciences, Education and Social Work at Queens University, Belfast.

As a student, you have the opportunity to represent your mentor group in student council, as a Sports Rep, in Tech Crew or on the Year Group Charity Committee. These positions ensure you play a key role in running and making decisions at our school: everything from producing shows to deciding which charities we support and what new fundraising activities we can get people involved in.  

You also have access, as part of the Goals of Education, to talks from professionals in different fields: past speakers have included Forensic Psychologists, professional rugby players and neuroscientists. In addition, you can enrich yourself through clubs: organising and holding debates with Mr McSherry, working to make our school and island more eco-friendly with Ms Bedward, or donating your time or gifts to help run the Old Folks events and give back to our community.   

If you (student or parent) have an idea or view you’d like to share, or you’d like to be involved in teaching Rights as part of the Y10 PSHE programme or rights mentor programme, please use the contact form below and selecting Rights Respecting Schools from the Subject Dropdown.
