UNICEF Rights Respecting School
We are a Rights Respecting Gold School!
This means that as a school, we will make sure that you know your rights as a child, and will help to make sure that your rights are met.
Learning about children’s rights will involve you exploring how to make your school the best place for learning and to play and grow – a place where everyone respects each other and treats each other fairly
You will be finding out how you can make a difference to children’s lives by knowing your own rights and the rights of all children in the school, in the local community and across the world.
We have been awarded the Gold Award!

The school has been working with UNICEF UK since October 2020, We received our Silver certificate in July 2021, and now have been awarded with the Gold certificate in September 2022.
UNICEF is the world’s leading organisation working for children and their rights.
~The Rights Respecting Schools Award is granted to schools that show commitment to promoting and realising children’s rights and encouraging adults, children and young people to respect the rights of others in school. Gold is the highest accolade given by UNICEF UK and shows a deep and thorough commitment to children’s rights at all levels of school life. There are only over 600 schools across England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales that have received Gold.
The Award recognises achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child at the heart of a school’s planning, policies and practice. A Rights Respecting School is a community where children’s rights are learned, taught, practised, respected, protected and promoted.
UNICEF work with schools in the UK to create safe and inspiring places to learn, where children are respected, their talents are nurtured, and they are able to thrive. Our Rights Respecting Schools Award embeds these values in daily school life and gives children the best chance to lead happy, healthy lives and to be responsible, active citizens.
