Rights Respecting Schools

Information for school website

As a school, we are committed to recognising the ‘United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child which sets out the social and cultural rights that all children everywhere are entitled to. It also explains how adults and governments must work together to make sure all children can enjoy all their rights.

 

What is the Rights Respecting Schools Award?

The Unicef UK Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) supports schools across the UK to embed children’s human rights in their ethos and culture. The award recognises achievement in putting the UN Convention on the Right of the Child (UNCRC) at the heart of a school’s practice to improve well-being and help all children and young people realise their potential.

 

The award is based on principles of equality, dignity, respect, non-discrimination and participation. The initiative started in 2006 and schools involved in the Award have reported a positive impact on relationships and well-being, leading to better learning and behaviour, improved academic standards and less bullying.

Black Lives Matter

As Rights Respecting citizens it is important that we educate ourselves and our children about equality. The only way to combat racism is by working together as a community. As a school we are committed to doing what we can to end racial injustice.
