Article 13 - Every child must be free to say what they think.

Article 29 - Education must encourage a child's respect for children's rights


We were all very excited to meet  Rocio Cifuentes, The Children's Commissioner of Wales. The first thing we did was take Rocio on a tour of the school, so that she could visit all the classes and speak to pupils and staff about their work with children's rights.


Then, Rocio spoke to some children about their well-being and the resilience activities they do with Miss Lewis in the well-being shed to support their mental health and emotional well-being.


Afterwards, Rights Respecting School Ambassadors talked to her about our special missions for the Children's Commissioner of Wales and our Outright campaign with UNICEF about Health care and well-being in our school.


Rocio then spoke to School Council about their work with children's rights and the Anti-Bullying Policy they are developing with pupils.


Rocio was very impressed with the work that we do in Sketty Primary to ensure that all children have their rights.
