UNICEF Rights Respecting School
Our school's drivers and values have at their heart the importance of treating each other as we would want to be treated ourselves, with respect and dignity, making sure that each person is valued. This is one of the reasons why the work of UNICEF and Rights Respecting Schools is so significant to us.
We are incredibly proud to be a Rights Respecting school and of having achieved the Bronze: Rights Respecting level.
WHAT IS A RIGHTS RESPECTING SCHOOL?
The UNICEF UK Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) is based on principles of equality, dignity, respect, non-discrimination and participation. The RRSA seeks to put the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child at the heart of a school’s ethos and culture to improve well-being and develop every child’s talents and abilities to their full potential.
UNICEF UK RIGHTS RESPECTING SCHOOLS ARE REQUIRED TO IMPLEMENT FOUR EVIDENCE-BASED STANDARDS:
- Rights-respecting values underpin leadership and management.
- The whole school community learns about the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
- The school has a rights-respecting ethos.
- Children are empowered to become active citizens and learners.
