This paper sought to contribute to the overall conference aim from a child rights perspective. It considers the UNCRC rights which relate to children in eduction and examines the status of the UNCRC in the UK and Wales. Having examined the legislative and policy commitments to the UNCRC in Wales, we assess whether these commitments are being translated from policy commitments on paper into actual practice on the ground. Evidence and experience from children and professionals are examined to ascertain the level of awareness of the UNCRC and the extent to which its principles are embedded in education settings.
