The Children’s Commissioner for Wales is there to make sure that all children and young people in Wales find out about their rights. These rights are the things that children need to be safe, healthy and happy. The United Nations has a list of all the rights that children have. As a school we have decided to focus on the following rights. This list is part of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, or UNCRC for short.
You have the right to life and to grow up to be healthy.
Your right to a name and nationality.
Your right to say what you think should happen and be listened to.
Your right to have information.
Your right to follow your own religion.
Your right to meet with friends and join groups and clubs.
You should not be harmed and should be looked after and kept safe.
Your right to good food and water and to see a doctor if you are ill.
Your right to learn and to go to school.
Your right to become the best that you can be.
Your right to relax and play.
