Rights Respecting School
Our School's Vision has at its heart the importance of treating each other as we would want to be treated ourselves, with respect and dignity, making sure that each person is valued. This is one of the reasons why the work of UNICEF and Rights Respecting Schools is so significant to us.
We are incredibly proud to be a Rights Respecting School and of having achieved the Bronze 'Rights Committed' level so far.
WHAT IS A RIGHTS RESPECTING SCHOOL?
The UNICEF UK Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) is based on principles of equality, dignity, respect, non-discrimination and participation. The RRSA seeks to put the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child at the heart of a school’s ethos and culture to improve well-being and develop every child’s talents and abilities to their full potential.
We are an inclusive, community school with a strong tradition of mutual respect and tolerance.
A rights-respecting school is a community where children’s rights are learned, taught, practised, respected, protected and promoted. Young people and the school community learn about children’s rights by putting them into practice every day.
We feel it is important that when children learn about their rights it is important that deeper connections are also made in their understanding about the nature of rights .
