Student Leadership

At Chestnut Grove, we are PROUD to promote human rights. The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child underpins our school ethos, all our school policies and our curriculum. Every member of the community has rights and it is important for young people to learn about their rights. Since we are all entitled to rights, we also have a responsibility to ensure that everyone can access their rights. The work of our staff and students ensures that each child can have their rights met but also that they work towards achieving rights for other children around the globe.

Chestnut Grove promotes human rights through its curriculum as well as extra-curricular and community events. Students learn about their rights and the rights of others and are active members of their community. Each year, students learn about different rights and fundraise to help those who are not always able to access their rights. The students have also designed their own charter outlining their rights and responsibilities.

All students have the right to be heard and express their opinions (Article 12 and 13). As such, we also have an active Student Council and committed group of Equality and Human Rights Ambassadors.
