School Ethos

The right to a childhood, The right to be educated, The right to be healthy, The right to be treated fairly, The right to be heard

Our ethos is communicated to the children and the school community through our fundamental question:

Who do I want to be?

We are committed to placing the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child at the heart of our core values and ethos; believing children’s participation is integral to all aspects of school life. The result is a raised sense of security and self-confidence which allows them to take the next step in advocating the rights of children everywhere.

This ethos further fosters a sense of community, respect and responsibility. It encourages the children to be active and informed citizens, who look to develop a positive future for all; campaigning and raising awareness.

The children’s experiences at Torriano ensure the children know that they have the 5 Rights of the Child and that these rights are inalienable.
