At Coety Primary School, we have achieved our bronze award as a Rights Respecting School. The UNICEF UK Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) is based on principles of equality, dignity, respect, non-discrimination and participation.
A rights-respecting school is a community where children’s rights are learned, taught, practised, respected, protected and promoted. Young people and the school community learn about children’s rights by putting them into practice every day. Each year our children create their class charters, incorporating elements of the UN charter for children. Each class talks through their charter of rights and how these rights also have responsibilities. The charter is agreed upon in each class and put into practice.
We promote a healthy diet and active lifestyle in Coety Primary School and are working towards our Healthy Schools Award by Public Health Wales.
There are three trained Emotional Literacy Support Assistants who support pupils with their Well-being needs in small group settings in both Foundation Phase and Key Stage 2.
As a school, we follow the PERMA approach. PERMA (Positive emotion, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning, Achievement) is an acronym that stands for the five elements developed by Martin Seligman that account for what makes up the “good life” – authentic and sustained happiness and well-being. Thus, no one element defines well-being, but each contributes, either subjectively or objectively.
We are a KiVa school. KiVa is an antibullying programme that has been developed at the University of Turku, Finland. For more information, click the link below.
