Our scheme for Primary Schools
Super Ambassadors is a scheme from the Children’s Commissioner for Wales that aims to promote children’s rights and the UNCRC in primary schools.
Last year over 180 primary schools across Wales took part, and we’re now looking for schools to sign up for the 2016/17 academic year.
How it works
Schools are asked to elect two Super Ambassadors at the beginning of every year. Super Ambassadors have three jobs. These are to:
- Inform other pupils in their school about the Commissioner and her powers
- Make sure other pupils know about about children’s rights under the UNCRC.
- Do special missions for the Commissioner in their school – these inform the work of our office and have a real impact on our work and on children’s rights in Wales
5 Reasons to join
- Information collected through the scheme feeds directly into our work, meaning that our Super Ambassadors have a real impact on children’s rights in Wales.
- The scheme provides an exciting and interactive way for children in your school to learn about their rights, in accordance with the UNCRC, which underpins the Welsh Government’s vision for education.
- By becoming an Ambassador school you will become a part of the Children’s Commissioner’s network of schools across Wales
- We hold celebration events every year in north, mid, and south Wales, where pupils take part in rights-based workshops with the Children’s Commissioner and her team, and teachers are given the opportunity to share their experiences of using the scheme in their school.
- It’s free!
