In 1989, governments worldwide promised all children the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC).
These rights are based on what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfil their potential. They apply equally to every child, regardless of who they are, or where they are from. 45 Articles..\Desktop\Taunton Learning Partnership 2\Cyber safety\crcsummary.pdf..\Desktop\Taunton Learning Partnership 2\Cyber safety\crcsummary.pdf
