UNICEF - Rights Respecting Schools
The Rights Respecting Schools Award puts children’s rights at the heart of schools in the UK.
Unicef works 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.
Using the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) as our guide, UNICEF is working with more UK schools than almost any other organisation. Over 1.6 million children in the UK go to a Rights Respecting School and nearly 5,000 schools up and down the country are working through the Award.
The Award recognises a school’s achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child into practice within the school and beyond.
We are delighted to have achieved our bronze award, demonstrating that we are rights committed. We have begun our journey of discovering what the articles in the convention are and what they mean to us and other children around the world.
We look forward to keeping you updated with our progress.
You can learn more about the articles by exploring the activities published weekly below in UNICEF's 'Article of the week' resource. You may enjoy singing along with our RRSA theme song - ''We've all got rights." Enjoy!
