Underlying all of our extra-curricular and enrichment provision at Dean Trust Ardwick is our commitment to children’s rights, as enshrined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. Every child has the right to an education that develops their personality, talents and abilities. Every child has the right to relax, play and take part in a wide range of cultural and artistic activities. Moreover, every child has the right to express their views, feelings and wishes in all matters affecting them, and to have their views considered and taken seriously. We are proud to have achieved the Unicef Rights Respecting Schools Silver Award and are now working towards our Gold Award, putting the rights of our pupils at the heart of everything that we do.
