Rights Respecting Schools

Rights Respecting Schools Award

We are very proud to have now been recognised by UNICEF as a Level 1 Rights Respecting School!

A ‘Rights Respecting School’ is one in which there is a culture of mutual respect underpinning all of its work. Children learn about their rights as identified in the United Nation’s Convention on the Rights of the Child. They also learn that they have responsibilities – a responsibility to respect the rights of all others in their community.

In a Rights Respecting School, children learn to appreciate their role within a community – their school and local community as well as their global community. This prestigious award also helps develop positive behaviour, improved self esteem and increased levels of respect, a sense of security and a wider and deeper understanding of the world in which we live.
