Rights Respecting Rangers

Welcome to the Rights Respecting Rangers page of the Dean Valley Website.

This year we have chosen to bring together the School Council and our work on the Convention of the Rights of the Child so that they are now one committee. Our first full steering group meeting was a huge success and the new Rangers are very excited about the year ahead. 

Have a look at our School Charter and a summary of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC)!

Please read our Rights Respecting Position Statement to find out more about our School.

You can also sing our song, 'I dream of a better world', just click the audio file and look at the lyrics!

Autumn term 2018

Don't forget to enter our Rangers first competition to design the new badge which will be used on their letter head, uniform and advertising. The deadline for entries is Wednesday 24th October. Hand your entries to your Year 2 Ranger Rory MacLean. Good luck!

You said...so we did...

Create our own fundraising opportunities at the Christmas fair...The school Council raised money which went towards toilet twinning in Africa. This supports global goal 6, clean water and sanitation and article 24. 

Find a space where children and adults can go to escape and have some time to think...so Dean Valley created the Escape lounge. This is a place for calm, reflection, a place to be yourself and feel safe. 

Provide more opportunities to exercise in our grounds...we found out from classes what type of equipment they felt would help to keep them active and then organised the purchase of the Apollo Challenger (which was funded by a very kind donation from Mr and Mrs Picken.) The whole school love climbing, exploring and learning using the new equipment.

Raise money for a new charity...we have held a blanket appeal raising £38.12 to help children protect children in Syria from the cold. Thank you for your donations.

This term we are going to look at creating a Playground Charter and to look at how we can develop playtime games for all to enjoy. 

School Council ran an assembly on Monday 6th February which shared their experiences of visiting the Houses of Parliament before Christmas. Their trip was a huge success, they met with David Rutley and discussed both issues which affect them in Bollington and the impact of Brexit on our country. 

In the Summer term you said you were concerned about road safety...

We focussed on road safety in the summer term spreading awareness of how busy Albert Road has become. There are so many buildings on Albert Road - businesses and schools as well as lots of houses that people are parking in the wrong places because of how busy it is. This makes it difficult for the residents of Albert Road and is dangerous for children and their parents walking to school. We have been running a competition to help raise awareness of road safety watch this space to see the winning design which will be displayed on the front fence of school! 

Last term you asked what our Governors do to help us so we....

We have been busy learning about our Governing Body, we visited the Bollington Council Offices in October and held our meeting there with several of our school Governors. Learning about what the role of a Governor is and what happens at their meetings has helped us to understand a little more about how important our Governors are to our school. Please read our leaflet so that you too can learn more about what Governors do. 

Thank you for all the amazing entries to our Road Safety Campaign competition. We were thrilled with all the exciting and informative posters we received and are pleased to announce the winners are:

Emily in Year 3 and Tilly and Ellie in Y6.

Please remember to park safely and considerately and to always follow the green cross code.
