As part of our well-being work, we are coordinating an exciting new project across the school. We are a "Rights Respecting School", teaching the children about their rights and ensuring they are involved in school developments. We have created a special committee involving staff, parents, pupils, PTA members and Governors.
“The UNICEF UK Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) supports schools across the UK to embed children’s human rights in their ethos and culture. The award recognises achievement in putting the UN Convention on the Right of the Child (UNCRC) at the heart of a school’s practice to improve well-being and help all children realise their potential. The award is based on principles of equality, dignity, respect, non-discrimination and participation. The initiative started in 2006 and schools involved in the Award have reported a positive impact on relationships and well-being, leading to better learning and behaviour, improved academic standards and less bullying.”
