At Lulworth and Winfrith Primary School we are committed to ensuring children’s well-being is at the heart of everything we do. At our school we believe it is important the children learn from the youngest age to become responsible citizens.
We aim to help our pupils grow into confident, caring and responsible young people both in school and within the wider community.
The Rights Respecting Schools initiative was set up by UNICEF and is an approach based on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). This convention supports children worldwide in ensuring their basic rights are met. As a Rights Respecting School we place the UNCRC at the heart of our ethos and curriculum.

We plan a half termly Rights Respecting Schools focus so children can learn about specific UNCRC articles.
During Fairtrade Fortnight we investigated how the choices we make can support farmers living and working across the world. The children enjoyed a Fair trade snack and have been spotting Fair trade symbols on the goods when they go shopping!
The children in Woodpeckers used role-play to investigate what life was like for farmers and how being part of a Fairtrade Co-operative can help them. In their Literacy lessons they wrote letters to shoppers to persuade them to buy Fairtrade.
Rights Respecting Schools Curriculum Day
We joined together as a whole school for a Rights Respecting Schools Curriculum Day. The children worked in mixed aged groups and enjoyed some exciting activities. The day was rounded off with a cake sale where the children sold some of the Fairtrade goods they had baked during the day and over £40 was raised for the UNICEF Bake For Syria charity.
