Rights Respecting Ambassadors

At Dorothy Barley Infant school, we are extremely proud to have achieved the silver accreditation as part of the Rights Respecting School Award and we are now working towards becoming a Gold UNICEF Rights Respecting School. A Rights Respecting Ethos is at the heart of everything we do at Dorothy Barley Infant School. 

Our Ambassadors is a representative group of pupils elected by their peers to represent their views and raise any issues concerning them. They are made up of a two representatives from each class ( a boy and a girl) from each class from Reception to Year 2. Ambassadors bring the views expressed in class to council meetings, during these sessions we discuss areas that are going well in the school and areas for improvement. These are then fed back to the school's senior team, teachers and pupils. 

The rights respecting ambassadors hope to help the children to:

  • Enjoy and feel empowered by their education.
  • Feel that the school responds to their needs.
  • Have the opportunity to let adults know their feelings and opinions about things that affect them. 
  • Have a say about decisions, and to play an active role in making the school a better place.
  • Develop active life skills through participation.
