St Anne’s Catholic Primary School, we understand the importance of educating the whole child. While academic excellence is important, we value deeply the need to ensure we nurture the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of a child as the foundation of their learning, growth and personal development. Through an engaging, varied curriculum we help the children develop their understanding, knowledge and skills to enable them to understand their rights and responsibilities and their important role in a democratic society. Our curriculum provision ensures that Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) gives children the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to stay healthy and safe.
UNICEF Rights Respecting School Award
At St Anne’s we have begun to work towards the UNICEF Rights Respecting school award. This award is based upon the United Nations Convention on the rights of the child. We believe that in embedding the core principles of this convention into our daily school life can allow our children to truly appreciate their rights and responsibilities as a child. This also helps the children deepen their knowledge of core British Values and enables them to understand, respect and value differences between themselves and others. The convention enables children to understand that all young people have the right to be treated with dignity and fairness, to be protected, to develop to their full potential and to participate. The convention informs children about what countries must do to ensure that they can enjoy their rights, regardless of whom they are, or where they are from.
