Principal's Welcome...

welcome
 

Hello and welcome to our school website. As a past pupil of The Convent of Mercy it is a pleasure  for me to be Principal of our school.

We have wonderful children and a great school with a very busy as well as varied curriculum and I hope you enjoy the various pages on offer on our website so that you get a real insight into the life of our school.

Please take time to look up our website and read all the new additions to it. This is a great opportunity for you to keep up to date with what is going on in school and to comment on the policies we are revising.

The site is regularly updated so ensure you check us out each week. I look forward to working with you and your children in the coming years.

We are becoming a Rights Respecting School!

We aim to be a school where children’s rights are at the heart of our ethos and culture, to improve well-being and to develop every child’s talents and abilities to their full potential. As part of this plan we are working towards recognition as a ‘Rights Respecting School’, an award given to schools on behalf of Unicef UK.

Unicef is the world’s leading organisation working for children and young people and their rights. In 1989, governments across the world agreed that all children have the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). These rights are based on what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfil their potential.

Our pupils will learn about their rights by putting them into practice every day. A Rights Respecting School models rights and respect in all its relationships. We hope that you will support us on our journey. For further information about Rights Respecting Schools please visit: www.unicef.org.uk/rrsa
