Unicef Rights Respecting School

Unicef Rights Respecting School

The UK Committee for UNICEF works with schools in the UK to create safe and inspiring places to learn, where children are respected, their talents are nurtured, and they are able to thrive. The Rights Respecting Schools Award embeds these values in daily school life and gives children the best chance to lead happy, healthy lives and to be responsible, active citizens.

We are delighted to announce that we have just received news that we achieved the Bronze award and are now in a very good position to focus on achieving Silver in the 2022/23 academic year.

As a rights respect school,  we are committed to:

  • Teach the whole school community about the rights of children and see them as underpinning our values, vision and mission
  • Ensuring that the rights of children inform all our practice
  • Working with Unicef to embed the rights of children in to our ethos.

“It’s clear from your action plan for Silver that lots of important steps are now in place at your school. The Silver accreditation will be a virtual visit. It has a developmental and supportive focus and will celebrate your progress, assess you for Silver: Rights Aware and help you plan towards full Gold: Rights Respecting accreditation. I look forward to seeing your progress towards Silver.”
