We have achieved Gold!

The assessor, Mr Paul Harris, would like to thank the children, the leadership team, staff, parents and governors for their warm welcome to the school, for the opportunity to speak with adults and pupils during the assessment, and for the very detailed evidence provided to support the process. Mr Harris recognised the following as particular strengths of our school –

  • a very clear strategic commitment to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC)
  • an ethos which is underpinned by respect creating a welcoming, supportive and inclusive learning community
  • pupil’s views are listened to and taken seriously
  • children are encouraged to learn about and engage with the wider world

Congratulations to the whole school community. We look forward to receiving our gold award Certificate and banner to display outside our school.  Please read the full below. We should all be extremely proud of our achievements.

What is ‘’The Rights Respecting Schools Award”?

The Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) recognises achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) at the heart of a school’s planning, policies, practice and ethos.  A rights-respecting school not only teaches about children’s rights but also models rights and respect in all its relationships: between pupils and adult, between adults and between pupils.

The UNICEF UK Rights Respecting School’s 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.  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.
