UNICEF Rights Respecting School
Our school has begun its journey towards becoming a UNICEF Rights Respecting School. This award programme supports schools across the UK to embed children’s human rights into the school’s ethos and culture.
The award recognises the achievement of putting the UN convention on the rights of the child (CRC) at the hear of the school’s practice to improve wellbeing and help all children and young people realise their potential.
The Award is based on the principles of equality, dignity, respect, non-discrimination, and participation. More information: https://www.unicef.org.uk/rights-respecting-schools/
