Rights Respecting School
We are a UNICEF UK Rights Respecting School!
We are a silver accredited school and are working towards the Gold Award.
UNICEF is the world’s leading organisation working for children and young people to promote and protect their rights. In 1989, governments across the world agreed that all children have the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. These rights are based on what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfill their potential.
The Rights Respecting Schools Award puts children’s rights at the heart of schools in the UK.
The UK Committee for UNICEF (UNICEF UK) 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. Our 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.
