Article of the Week – Article 31


This week we’re revisiting Article 31 which says that every child has the right to relax, play and take part in a wide range of cultural and artistic activities.

Even though the right to play may not always seem as important as others, such as the right to health or protection, we know that rights are indivisible and play is central to children’s development.

We’ve included some activities for your learners to exercise their right to relax and play straight away – including dancing and drawing for younger children and mindfulness exercises for older ones. They can also think about clubs at your schools and whether there is something enjoyable and accessible for everyone, as well as how they will enjoy their upcoming summer break.

Also, we’d like to bring your attention to of our remaining training courses this term. There are still places available at sessions for all stages of the Award, new Strengthening Pupil Participation training and support workshops too. Find out more.
