Endeavour Primary School is delighted to have achieved 'Recognition of Commitment' for Rights-Respecting School status.
Previously known as ‘The three R’s’ (rights, respect and responsibilities), RRS refers to rights-respecting Schools. Underpinning this is the UNCRC (United Nations Conventions of the Rights of the Child), which is an international agreement that protects the human rights of children under the age of 18. On 16th December 1991, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland formally agreed to make sure that every child in the UK has all the rights as listed in the convention. The Committee continue to meet on a regular basis to ensure this is still happening. A total of 54 articles were written (42 of key interest) – each of which relates to a different right. Examples of these articles include: Article 3 – ‘All adults should do what is best for you’, Article 16 – ‘You have the right to privacy’ and Article 28 – ‘You have the right to a good quality education.’ The articles also refer to our wider community in terms of global issues and how these affect children’s rights.

Children’s rights are at the heart of Endeavour Primary School.
