What is the Steering Committee?
The steering committee is a group of children and adults from across the school community who lead the school’s rights respecting work.
The steering committee has the support of the headteacher, governing body and senior management team so that they can influence and drive forward change. As this group has a leading role to play it is important that the group is representative of the whole school community.
The Steering Committee meets regularly so that the group can:
- Ensure that the whole school is aware of the Rights Respecting Schools Award.
- Provide a link between children and young people, teachers, senior management team, governors and the whole school community.
- Regularly feedback to the school community about progress, including to the SMT, governors, staff and parents.
- Prepare for the assessment by collating evidence and being able to meet with the assessor(s).
