Articles in Action

The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child in the UK school context.

Home > Articles in Action

This resource illustrates how the Convention can provide a powerful framework to help articulate a school’s vision, aims, ethos and everyday practice, alongside providing a common language that can be used by all stakeholders within the school community.

The resource focusses on the first 42 articles of the CRC (articles 43-54 are about how adults and governments must work together to make sure all children can enjoy all their rights).

For each article some examples of links between the CRC article and the school context have been made in terms of the school’s strategic work and with regard to pupil’s learning and engagement with the wider world.

Suitable for all school settings.
