Rights Respecting Schools Award

Since January 2016, we have been working towards becoming a Rights Respecting School. Our steering committee (including: pupils, staff, a governor and community representatives) have been working towards the Level 1 Rights Respecting Schools Award, which we are delighted to say we have now achieved. The full report is attached below, but we are particularly proud of the following points:

  • School Leaders have a clear commitment to the principles and values of the UNCRC and the Rights Respecting work is giving children a voice.
  • Pupils are able to site a range of rights and show good understanding that rights are universal and unconditional. They are also able to apply their understanding of rights in different contexts.
  • Parents and governors are supportive of the school's rights respecting work; one parent explained that for pupils it was, 'such a positive thing to have a voice.'
  • The school's ethos is underpinned by high levels of respect which was very evident throughout the assessment period.
  • Pupils are supportive of and courteous to each other.
  • One Year 6 pupil explained that an understanding about rights helps to resolve any disagreement and is becoming 'entwined into our everyday lives.'
  • When asked, pupils said they felt safe at school and were able to describe ways in which this was achieved.

    A beautifully created mural of a tree within the school's foyer, in which each pupil has their own unique leaf, captures the inclusive nature of the school where diversity is both valued and respected.
