A new Focus Right
At Oakley Infant School 'E-Safety', is taught explicitly in every year group and referred to throughout the year.
Children learn how to stay safe online; judge whether information is reliable and get information which is important to their health and well-being.
In the digital world in which we live, E-Safety is essential to keeping children safe and happy.
For this reason, Article 17 of the UNCRC - 'Access to information; mass media' has been added to the focus rights of the school.
Article 17 states that 'Children have the right to get information that is important to their health and well-being. Governments should encourage mass media – radio, television, newspapers and Internet content sources – to provide information that children can understand and to not promote materials that could harm children. Mass media should particularly be encouraged to supply information in languages that minority and indigenous children can understand. Children should also have access to children’s books.'
Look out for the Article 17 - E-Safety Woodland animal- Harry Hedgehog who will be visiting the children of Oakley Infant School soon.
Rights Respecting Parents' Tip!
TRY IT TUESDAY!
Try to do something new once a week, it doesn’t have to be on a Tuesday! Ideas include tasting a new food (ideally 15 - 20 times before you can decide if you really like it!) to trying a new task, such as tying shoelaces!
Rights Respecting Family Photo Competition!
We would like to thank all those families that took part and shared their photographs of their children demonstrating different articles or rights from the UN Charter of Children’s Rights.
The winner of the family ticket to Paulton's Park is Edward Tucknott and his family for his photograph representing the right to nutritious food. Edward and his brother collected grocery items each day during December and on Christmas Eve they took the box to the food bank in Basingstoke. Edward carried his box into the centre and gave it to the volunteers and watched it get weighed. Edward's parent's talked about how children have a right to food but that not everyone can afford this. A wonderful act of kindness and a superb way to demonstrate the right to nutritious food.
