Children’s Rights

Overview

In this lesson pupils will learn that there are specific rights for children which are set out in the United Nations Conventions on the Rights of the Child. Pupils will learn about the evolution of these rights through studying the life and works of Eglantyne Jebb who was the founder of Save the Children and author of the first declaration of children’s rights. Pupils will then consider how their rights are met at school and how they can contribute to a culture in which children’s rights are valued and upheld.
