Rights Respecting Steering Group

Our Rights Respecting Steering Group

At Henry Cavendish, we have ambassadors who work hard to help others in the school learn all about their rights and the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.  Our ambassadors are selected from Years 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 from our Balham and Streatham sites. They are very proactive in taking assemblies to teach others about rights, leading campaigns on matters that they are passionate about regarding rights and encouraging the use of Rights Respecting language in all areas of the school.


Thank you to our steering group ambassadors in Balham and Streatham who worked very hard to produce our very own Rights Respecting language booklet.  The booklets provide examples of how Rights Respecting language can be used around school and every duty bearer working in the school has now been issued with one.


The Rights Respecting Steering Group work closely with the Eco Action Team and the School Council to develop campaigns and strategies on a wide range of issues which link to the UNCRC. To find out more take a look at our OutRight campaigns and pupil led projects linked below.
