Our 'Statement to Live By'

8th Nov 2020

Our statement is ‘I know that rights match responsibility.’

Time to talk: Our rights are what every human being deserves, no matter who they are or where they live, so that we can live in a world that is fair and just.

Everyone has the right to:

  • be happy
  • be safe
  • be loved
  • be safe
  • be educated
  • shelter (somewhere to live)
  • warmth
  • food
  • clothing
  • personal space
  • freedom of speech
  • freedom to be different
  • to feel comfortable
  • equal opportunities - given the chance to be what you want regardless of wealth, religion or race


Of course since these rights are for everybody, it means we all have responsibilities too. A responsibility is something that is your job to do something about, or to think about. It is something that affects our lives and other people's lives.

Some of our responsibilities:

  • to follow the rules at home, at school and in the community - after all they are there for our safety and to protect our rights and the rights of others 
  • to stand up for our rights and the rights of others as much as we can
  • to be the best person that we can be
  • to take care of our own bodies as best we can
  • to respect the rights of others
  • to look after our own belongings and respect the belongings of others
  • to learn as well as we can
  • to care about others who are not as strong in some ways as we are

What do you think are the most important rights and responsibilities? Why? Everyone in the world is an important and special person.
