She deserves an education!
As a Rights Respecting School, we have been elected to participate in a project to create a Girls’ Education Declaration. This Declaration will set out why girls’ education is important, the school’s commitment to girls’ education, and their calls for action to G7 leaders on girls’ education. This project aims to:
- offer a meaningful opportunity for children and young people in RRSA schools across the UK to learn about and engage in the G7;
- offer a meaningful opportunity for children and young people in RRSA schools across the UK to learn about gender inequality in the UK and girls’ education around the world; and young people in the UK on their priorities for action from G7 leaders on girls’ education.
Every child in Key stage 1 and Key Stage 2 wrote their own Girls’ Education Declaration form as part of UNICEF UK’s efforts to promote children’s voices. UNICEF will share every declaration form with every single official at the G7 summit to make sure that they have heard from the pupils at Kentish Town Primary School about how important girls’ education is to them.
Here are a few of the declarations written by our pupils
You have the right to a good quality education. You should be encouraged to go to school to the highest level you can.
Your education should help you use and develop your talents and abilities. It should also help you learn to live peacefully, protect the environment and respect other people.
