We are a Gold UNICEF Rights Respecting School. This means that we place the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child at the heart of all we do. Children are taught about their rights and how to respect them. They learn that their behaviour can impact on the rights of others in positive and negative ways. They learn that although these rights should be equal for children across the world, in practical terms this isn't always the case.

Year 6 - World's largest lesson

World's largest lesson - On Friday 27th September all classes at Cranbourne took part in the World's Largest lesson. It is an annual event, promoted by UNICEF and involves children from all around the world. It aims to inform and encourage our children to have a better understanding of world issues by learning about the global goals. This years focus is 'Imagine to future, make it happen'.

Every month the whole school has a focus right to think about and discuss in class. We have found it has really helped us to know and understand our rights. Look out for right of the month stars on display in classrooms and around school.

Rights Reps have been voting on new icons for the CRC articles to celebrate it being 30 years old.

Rights Reps have been busy getting involved with the UNICEF Outright campaign - Take action for clean air

Cranbourne Rights Reps were part of a group of over 4000 children who wrote to Michael Gove to tell him how toxic air is impacting their right to a clean and safe environment. 

The Rights Reps went on a Class Charter walk around school today. What a great selection of amazing displays!

Year 3 looked at where our food comes from.

We wondered if everyone who helps bring us a banana gets treated fairly.

Using food labels to investigate where our food comes from in Year 3.

Look at our amazing class charters. They are all unique to each class as the children designed and signed them.

What are children's rights?

A great video to help introduce Children's Rights.

We have achieved  Level 1 of the Rights Respecting School Award

Look at our new Class Charters

As part of our school’s aims to promote a happy and successful school, we have gained recognition as a “Rights Respecting School”. This is an award which is given to schools on behalf of UNICEF.


UNICEF is the world’s leading organisation working for children and their rights. In 1989, governments worldwide promised all children the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). These rights are based on what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfil their potential.
