St Alban's Catholic Primary School aims to be a school where children’s rights are at the heart of our ethos and culture, to improve well-being and to develop every child’s talents and abilities to their full potential. As part of this plan we continue to work towards recognition as a ‘Rights Respecting School’, an award given to schools on behalf of Unicef UK.
Unicef is the world’s leading organisation working for children and young people and their rights. In 1989, governments across the world agreed that all children have the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). These rights are based on what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfil their potential.
St Alban's Catholic Primary School's pupils learn about their rights by putting them into practice every day. A Rights Respecting School models rights and respect in all its relationships.

Rights Respecting Senedd Committee
A group of pupils meet weekly to discuss their ideas, opinions and carryout actions which are on their action plan. The Right Respecting Committee are working towards achieving the Silver Rights Respecting Schools Award.
They inform the school community about their rights and how the adults as 'duty holders' have a responsibility to enable children to have their rights.
