Article 3 (best interests of the child)
The best interests of the child must be a top priority in all decisions and actions that affect children.
Adults should think about the best interests of children and young people when making choices that affect them. This means that:
- Adults who know individual children and young people (such as their parents, guardians or teachers) should think about their best interests when they make decisions
- Adults in positions of power (such as those who work in the Government or in courts of law) should think about the best interests of all children and young people in their jurisdiction when making laws.(https://www.cypcs.org.uk/rights/uncrcarticles/article-3)
All year the staff at Bridge of Don Academy have been thinking about the best interests of the pupils and preparing them for exams or assessments. Hopefully all this hard work will pay off in the next few weeks and no one will feel like Mr Bean in the exam room!! Good luck to everyone.
