Rights Respecting Schools

Trinity Fields School is a Rights Respecting School.  This is central to our pupil centred ethos. 

We are a Rights Respecting School! We were assessed by 2 UNICEF assessors in January 2017 and we were successful in achieving this prestigious award. We are the 1st school in Caerphilly to get this award and we are all very proud of our Rights Respecting work.

Our Level 2 RRS Report can be found by clicking here.


The Rights Respecting School Award recognises schools that put the Convention on the Rights of the Child at the centre of their school ethos and planning. As a school community pupils and staff work together to achieve common goals; pupils are at the heart of everything that we do at Trinity Fields School and are included in all aspects of school life from helping governors interview prospective staff to helping staff purchase new school resources- such as the upgrading pf playgrounds and the development of our new rebound therapy room.This central role for pupils is best encapsulated in our whole school motto:

"Learning together in a changing world, creating success for all."

“The RRSA recognises achievement in putting the Convention on the Rights of the Child at the heart of a school's planning, policies, practice and ethos. By taking these steps a school community helps improve well-being and develop every childís talents and abilities to their potential. A rights- respecting school not only teaches about child rights but also models rights and respect in all its relationships: between teachers/adults and pupils, between adults, and between pupils.”   UNICEF, 2013.


The Convention on the Rights of the Child consists of 54 articles. A ‘child’ is defined as every human being below the age of 18. The key provisions are:

•The right to a childhood

•The right to be educated

•The right to be healthy

•The right to be treated fairly

•The right to be heard

By learning about the Convention where possible our pupils can discover that:

•They have rights
•They should be informed about their rights
•They should be helped to exercise their rights
•They should be able to enforce their rights
•There should be a community of interest to advocate young people’s rights

The Convention  also underpins how staff and pupils behave towards each other and how we behave as a school community in general.
