Know my rights

What are rights?

Everyone has rights. Rights are like promises to make sure that you are treated fairly, protected, cared for, and have what you need to live a good life.

Your rights are set out in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (or the UNCRC for short).

Know your rights to education and support

Children and young people have the right to an education that is accessible for all.

You should feel supported, listened to and involved in decisions at school.

Your education should help you reach your full potential, regardless of background, disability, gender or religion.
