Overall Policy Statement
As part of our commitment to the rights of the child the Governors are to use the following statement in all new policy statements and all policy reviews. This commitment is being included in all current reviews but should also be considered as applying to existing policies until reviews are due:
In all aspects of this policy full consideration is given to the UN Convention of the Rights of the Child, in its entirety; particularly Article 2; which states that the convention applies to all children, whatever their ethnicity, gender, religion, language, abilities, or any other status, whatever they think or say, whatever their family background, and Article 3, where it is explicit that the best interests of the child must be a priority in all decisions and actions that affect the children.
