Rights Respecting School

What is a Rights Respecting School?

We are a Unicef Rights Respecting School and are currently working towards the Bronze Award. This means that we are working towards showing a continued commitment to learning about the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and encouraging an atmosphere of equality, dignity, respect, non-discrimination and participation.

UNICEF, the United Nations International Children’s Fund, is the world’s leading organisation for children. Their work is based upon the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. This is a document that ensures the countries signed up to it, of which the UK is one, recognise 43 child rights. The convention outlines that every child, regardless of who they are or where they live, grows up safe, healthy and happy.
