Hawthorn Primary School's Therapy Dog Bailey introduces his namesake Bailey our Rights Respecting Mascot...
Bailey’s Rights Respecting Journey
Discover your rights with Bailey the Rights Respecting Dog.
Hawthorn Primary School currently holds the Rights Respecting Silver Award. The Rights Respecting Schools Award is an initiative run by UNICEF,UK which encourages schools to place the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child at the heart of its ethos and curriculum.
Bailey is Hawthorn Primary’s very special therapy dog and we believe that his diary will give us a wonderful opportunity to encourage children to share this ethos with their most important educators – their parents and carers.
Please choose an article from those shown on the inside cover of this book and include a photograph and caption to convey how Bailey and your child use these rights outside school. Some examples are shown below for your information.
Article 28 (right to education)
Bailey shared (Child A’s) reading book with him/her.
A photograph of Bailey and your child would then be added to the same page. Perhaps they could be reading together or Bailey could be helping your child with their home learning. Please encourage your child to write the caption and do not use more than two pages.
Article 14 (freedom of thought, belief and religion)
Bailey and (Child B) enjoyed celebrating __________together.
A photograph of Bailey and your child celebrating a religious event or sharing a cultural belief would be lovely.
Article 24 (health and health services)
This photograph may show Bailey enjoying a healthy meal with your family and a caption explaining this.
