Rights Respecting Schools

23rd May 2016
Following our award for RRSA Recognition of Commitment, we have been working towards achieving Level 1 of the Rights Respecting Schools Award.
Today we were awarded our Level 1 after an assessment visit by a Unicef UK assessor.
The Level 1 Rights Respecting Schools Award is the second stage of the award (after Recognition of Commitment). The Level 1 Award is granted by Unicef UK to schools that show good progress towards embedding children’s rights in the school’s policy, practice and ethos, as outlined in our four standards and in our Expected Outcomes at Level 1.

The level 1 award is granted by Unicef UK to schools for a period of three years. This makes sure that the school continues to be rights-respecting and the values and ethos remain live in the school. After three years have passed, all schools are re-accredited.

Nearly all schools that have achieved Level 1 will be well on the way to achieving Level 2 within three years .
