Our Vision for Behaviour
at Thomas Buxton Primary School
Children aspire to be good citizens and demonstrate a strong moral purpose through a values-led school ethos. These values, along with the UNCRC (United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child) Articles are at the heart of all school planning, policies and documents as a Rights Respecting School.
Children take responsibility for their own behaviour, learning from mistakes whilst developing a sense of moral purpose which supports them in making good decisions throughout their lives.
The UNCRC articles which inform our approach are:
Article 12: Respect the Views of the Child – Every child has the right to say what they think in all matters affecting them, and to have their views taken seriously.
Article 15: Freedom of Association – Every child has the right to meet with other children and young people and to join groups and organisations, as long as this does not stop others from enjoying their rights.
Article 29: Goals of Education - Education must develop every child’s personality, talents and abilities to the full. It must encourage the child’s respect for human rights, as well as respect for their parents, their own and other cultures and the environment.
Article 31: Leisure, play and culture – Every child has the right to relax, play and join in a wide range of cultural and artistic activities.
