Dignity in School

Dignity in School:
A hub for rights based practice

Welcome to the Hub!

Children’s Parliament is working with partners to build the capacity of primary schools to take a children’s rights-based approach and become hubs of human rights practice. By adopting a rights-based approach, schools help to make rights real for children by ensuring that their dignity is upheld.  

The Hub is a work in progress, please keep coming back to keep up to date as the programme develops, learn about rights based practice and use our free resources to develop your own rights based practice.

Let’s make primary schools the home for human rights practice and the advancement of childrens’s human dignity that we know they can be.
