INVITATION TO ‘RIGHTS RESPECTING SCHOOLS IN NEATH PORT TALBOT’ EDUCATION CONFERENCE – 19TH NOVEMBER 2014
In 2012, Wales became the first Country in the UK to embed the UNCRC into Welsh domestic law. This new measure states that all Ministers have a due regard to put children’s rights at the heart of all Welsh policy and practice when decisions are made.
This pupil led conference aims to showcase UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools Award which provides a practical framework to implement the values and principles of the UNCRC into all aspects of schools life. The day will recognise the impact and benefits that this framework is having on senior leaders, practitioners and more importantly children and young people.
The Children’s Commissioner for Wales
Neath Port Talbot Council & Education Department
Wales Observatory on Human Rights for Children and Young People
