Rights Respecting School Award
We are a Unicef UK Rights Respecting School!
Grange Park School aims to be a place where children’s rights are at the heart of our ethos and culture, to improve well-being and to develop every child’s talents and abilities to their full potential. As part of this plan, We are delighted to have been awarded SILVER - Rights Aware, in Rights Respecting School.
Our school is explicitly embedding the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child in its policy, practice and culture.
We are promoting knowledge and understanding of the Convention throughout our school community.
We are putting into action and developing the plans outlined on our Action Plan for Silver, which we submitted to achieve Bronze: Rights Committed. We are beginning to see the positive impact of these actions on children and young people, staff, and on the school’s ethos, practice and environment.
Unicef is the world’s leading organisation working for children and young people and their rights. In 1989, Governments across the world agreed that all children have the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). These rights are based on what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfil their potential.
Children and young people of Grange Park are beginning to see themselves as rights respecting global citizens and advocates for fairness and children’s rights, both locally and globally.
We have committed to continuing our journey by going for GOLD this academic year! Thank you to all who helped make this possible and we really hope you will continue to support us and your children on this journey.
