Our journey towards becoming a Rights Respecting School

In September 2012, we began working on the Rights Respecting School initiative and the 42 articles included in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).

A Rights Respecting School puts the UNCRC at the heart of their planning, policies, practice and ethos, to enable all children to develop their talents and abilities in order to achieve their potential as global citizens.

We believe that the UNCRC reflects the beliefs of our school community, that our children receive their right to a wonderful education and understand the responsibilities that they have to their communities as they grow into confident, active and responsible citizens.

Our children will continue to learn about the rights and responsibilities as well as the work of UNICEF in helping to build a better world for children.

We were delighted to be recognised with a Level 1 award in July 2013 & in July 2014 we went on to one of the first schools in the borough to achieve Level 2 status.
