Ty Gwyn is a Rights Respecting School
Ty Gwyn Education Centre aims to be a school where children’s rights are at the heart of our ethos and culture, to improve well-being and to develop every child’s talents and abilities to their full potential. We have now achieved RRS Bronze Award in recognition of our progress in this area, listening to and working with the voices of children and young people.
Unicef is the world’s leading organisation working for children and young people and their rights. In 1989, governments across the world agreed that all children have the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). These rights are based on what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfil their potential.
In 2011, Wales became the first UK country to bring the UNCRC Rights of the Child into domestic law.
All pupils will learn about their rights by putting them into practice every day. A Rights Respecting School models rights and respect in all its relationships.
