Our Rights Respect Responsibility Programme aims to promote respect for all through discussion about rights, based on the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child, and the responsibility we all have to respect the rights of each other. It counteracts discrimination, the effects of which can be far reaching, affecting educational achievement, social development and physical and mental health. Through our work the College seeks to improve behaviour and combat discriminatory attitudes so that all students are seen as active and valued members of the College community.

PROMOTING HUMAN RIGHTS FOR A SUCCESSFUL AND MUTUALLY RESPECTFUL COLLEGE COMMUNITY
A.B.C ANTI-BULLYING CREW
Our Anti-bullying and RRR strategies help all students to feel included, they are non-discriminatory and encompass the whole College and create an atmosphere of mutual respect. Peer support and RRR teaching have been used to make the students more responsible for their own behaviour and learning and this impacts positively on our standards. This in turn helps them to care for themselves, others and their environment creating a partnership resulting in a positive college ethos. Each year a survey of students is carried out to ascertain their voice. Hearing what the students say must, therefore, lie at the heart of an elaboration of the children’s rights. The Peer Support Team and Anti-Bullying policy supports children’s rights and inclusion in College. We are presently working towards the UNICEF Rights, Respecting School award; this provides us with a framework of benchmarks which fit closely with the Every Child Matters key outcomes.
