UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools

UN Convention on the Rights of the Child

 

We are pleased to report that in July 2017 we were awarded the Level 1 Rights Respecting School Award

Unicef UK Rights Respecting Schools are required to implement four evidence-based standards.

  1. Rights-respecting values underpin leadershipand management.
  2. The whole school community learns about the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child
  3. The school has a rights-respecting ethos
  4. Children are empowered to become active citizens and learners.

 

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.

 

Level 1

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.

 

Level 2

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.
