Rights Respecting School




Welcome to our Rights Respecting Schools page. We are a UNICEF Rights Respecting School and we are delighted to have been awarded the Silver Award, now we are heading towards the Gold Award.

What is a Rights Respecting School?

A UNICEF Rights Respecting School is a community where children’s rights are heard, taught, practised, respected, protected and promoted. Children and the school community learn about children’s rights by putting them into practice every day. 

Being a Rights Respecting School is not just about what children do but also importantly, what adults do. In a Rights Respecting School, children’s rights are promoted and realised and adults and children work towards this together. 

The Rights Respecting School Award (RRSA) recognises achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child at the heart of school’s planning, policies, practices and ethos.

United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) - What is it?

It is a list of children’s rights that all children and young people, everywhere in the world, have, no matter who they are, where they live or what they believe in.

The UNCRC has 54 articles, 42 rights are for children and young people up to 18 years of age. The others are all about how governments and adults should work together to make sure children and young people can access their rights. 

Children’s rights are all the things that children and young people need to make sure that they are safe, have the things they need to survive and develop, and have a say in decisions that affect


           Class Charters

  1. the beginning of this and each academic year all classes create a Class Charter.
  •  Each class choose the rights that they feel are most important to them and decide on the actions that are expected of both children and adults in the class.
  1. purpose of this charter is to give all members of the class a voice through which a mutually agreed upon set of standards and expectations are achieved. 

            Whole School Charter and Playground Charter

            We are currently developing our whole school charter which will  link to our values.




Our school is a happy, safe, supportive space. 

We aim to create a can do attitude by providing an inclusive, engaging and fun curriculum, where EVERY pupil reaches their full potential.
