Children’s rights and responsibilities are two intertwined concepts that form the cornerstone of a just and equitable society.
Within The Woodlands Primary we follow the Jigsaw scheme, which is the mindful approach to PSHE, it takes children and young people’s safety very seriously and aims to equip them to lead safe, happy and healthy lives, to embrace the opportunities open to them, to aim high, and to be empowered to keep themselves safe, know their rights and responsibilities and know where and how to ask for help when needed.
Within the Jigsaw scheme under the topic of Being Me in My world, the children learn what their rights are including; their right to an education, no discrimination and respect for their views.
