We are officially a UNICEF Rights Respecting School!
Our school has recently achieved the Silver Award: Rights Aware.
UNICEF works with Schools in the UK to create safe and inspiring places to learn, where children are respected, their talents are nurtured and able to thrive. Every child, no matter who they are or where they live, has the right to grow up safe, happy and healthy. The Rights Respecting School Award (RRSA) recognises achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) at the heart of a school’s planning, policies, practice and ethos.
In order to ensure all our adults (duty bearers) and pupils (rights holders) understand the principles of children’s rights that are outlined in the CRC, UNICEF have produced a series of articles that enshrine the critical rights of a child. For example:
Our new UNICEF Ambassadors who will be working to promote UNICEF in our school and make the children aware of their rights. They will also be working on projects to embed UNICEF values in daily school life and help to give our children the best chance to lead happy, healthy lives and to be responsible, active citizens.
