UNCRC Rights Rangers
Gorsefield Primary School is a Silver Rights Respecting School.
Achieving silver means that the school is 'Rights Aware' and the UNCRC UN Convention of the Rights of the Child is in policy, practice and culture across the school.
Gorsefield Primary School promotes knowledge and understanding of the convention throughout the school an community, as put into action during the 'Bronze' stage being 'Rights Committed'.
As a silver rights respecting school, we have seen a positive impact on the actions of children and staff, on the school's ethos, practice and environment. Our children see themselves as rights respecting global citizens and advocates for fairness and children's rights, both locally and globally.
Here at Gorsefield, children have the opportunity to become a Rights Ranger. A Rights Ranger is an advocate and champion of the UNCRC and make it a duty to ensure all children and adults are meeting the UN Convention.

Rights Rangers Global Work
Gorsefield Primary School Rights Rangers teamed up with Edge Hill University and their Professor of Children's Rights and Professor of Child Health Literacy, to be consulted on a world-wide publication. The Rights Rangers were consulted on children's health care procedures and ISupport Rights-Based Standards for children needing healthcare procedures.
The work on the ISupport Standards links with UNCRC Articles 3, 6, 24 and 25.
