Rights Respecting School Award
Unicef UK Rights Respecting Schools are required to implement four evidence-based standards.
RIGHTS RESPECTING SCHOOL AWARD
Accreditation is achieved by an external assessment process, to provide evidence that the four standards have been met. To help schools implement the RRSA effectively, this is broken down into three stages. Commitment to final assessment at Level 2 can take up to four years.
Recognition of Commitment
The headteacher and school leaders commit to becoming a right-respecting school. Children and young people work with adults to decide how to develop a whole-school rights-respecting approach. The school submits electronic evidence to show their progress.
The school implements the action plan and makes good progress towards embedding the principles of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child into its ethos and
curriculum. Assessors visit the school to accredit progress.
The school has fully embedded the principles of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child into its ethos and curriculum across all areas. Assessors visit the school to establish that the Convention is embedded.
