Rights Respecting School

In January 2012, we were awarded the UNICEF UK Rights Respecting School Level 1 Award. This Award means that the school recognises that the values of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child have been introduced into the school community. These values remain an important part of school life and are reflected in the preparation for our cross curricular topics taken form the International Primary Curriculum (IPC).

As a Rights Respecting School, children are taught that all children across the world have rights. The School’s ethos of respect and tolerance for all sets the foundation as children develop into young adults. Children accept that it is OK to be different and to have a different opinion to someone else. The Link Curriculum Priorities that underlay everything that is taught and the way that it is taught at the school helps to foster positive relationships. Children learn to understand and be understood. This is the main way that the school supports the Government PREVENT strategy as quality relationships that build understanding and tolerance reduce the likelihood of extremist behaviour.

A Rights Respecting School is based on principles of equality, dignity, respect, non-discrimination and participation. For more information please see the link below.
