UNICEF RIGHTS RESPECTING SCHOOL

In 2011 we achieved Level 1 status as a Rights Respecting School. 

Roe Valley is a school where every aspect of a child is focused on and developed, including the area of well being. As part of our school’s aims to promote a happy and successful school, we are working towards maintaining our status as a Rights Respecting School. This is an award which is given to schools on behalf of UNICEF.

All children learn about their rights and responsibilities, helping them recognise that they are universal and that all children do not have equal access to these rights across the world. At Roe Valley IPS, we inform children of their rights and that everybody has rights and we are committed to working towards a world where everyone can access these.

We started in 2012 with a whole school focus on the UNCRC. Each class chose a right and discussed the issues surrounding it with their peers and teacher. After a lot of discussion and research into their right, each class created an amazing mural representing their right. These are on display in our school for parents and visitors to see!! We are all very proud of them (especially the pupils) and they look fantastic.

HEALTH PROMOTING SCHOOL

We have held the Health Promoting Schools Gold Award since 2008/09. We have a healthy snack policy and encourage healthy lunch boxes by holding regular lunchbox challenges and competitions. 

The award helps young people to understand the many factors that influence health and their own ability to influence these factors as individuals and within their community. 

To view our Healthy Breaks Policy, visit the policies page in the 'About Us' section.
