UNICEF rights respecting school
WE ARE PROUD TO BE A RIGHTS RESPECTING SCHOOL!
Congratulations to the whole school community as we have now achieved the Rights Respecting Sliver Award. Thank you for all your hard work and support in achieving this award.
We are enrolled in UNICEF's Rights representing schools programme. In February 2019, we were accredited with a Silver Award and we are now working towards achieving Gold. The aim of this award is to bring children's rights and responsibilities into everyday learning as well as educate our children on the rights of children all around the world.
The programme is based on the Articles of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, which applies to all young people under 18.
We feel that children's rights are essential to education even for the youngest children and that the programme will contribute to their development in later life.
Here are some of the ways the UNICEF Rights of the Child are upheld and promoted in school:
Articles around the school
Referencing Articles in their learning
