Rights Respecting School

We are a ‘Gold Rights Respecting School’, continuing the work of UNICEF and the ‘Convention on the Rights of the Child’ (CRC).

Holymead Primary School has a strong belief that our children should be aware of their rights as children and have a right to be heard. As well as learning about our rights, we learn that EVERYONE else has rights too. 


Representing each class we have our ‘Rights Action Group’ (RAG) who are working hard to ensure that children’s rights are met at our school but also on a national and international level.


Watch this space for what they’re up to next…

Last term, the Rights Action Group organised a sponsored Run-a-thon across the school. They suggested that we should help local families who have been affected by the war in Ukraine. We are so proud to say that we raised over £5500 for the Disasters Emergency Committee! The money was raised by our families and people in the local community sponsoring pupils to participate. Thank you for your support!


Climate Change
The Rights Action Group have been thinking about how we can 'do our bit' to tackle climate change. The RAG took a whole school assembly to take about why climate change is happening and the impacts of this on our planet.
We have been thinking about how we can make a difference in school and at home.
Can you think of anymore things we can do to help?

Holymead regularly fundraises to support the lives of people locally, nationally and internationally. 

This year, we have raised money for Child of Hope through our Aspirations Day. Child of Hope is a charity that provides free education, healthcare, food and welfare to children and their families in Uganda. We raised a whopping £374!
