"The Award recognises achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child at the heart of a school’s planning, policies and practice.  A Rights Respecting School is a community where children’s rights are learned, taught, practised, respected, protected and promoted." 

"The school is explicitly giving children access to their rights. They have ownership and social responsibility." Parent.

" We learn and talk about own own rights and the rights of children all around the world every day." Child





We want every child to understand and promote the shared values of our school - equality, respect, postivity, responsibility, kindness and courage. We feel that embracing the Rights of the Child alongside our school values we have developed a strong postitive ethos. Children can begin to make connections with the needs and rights of themselves and other children and learn more deeply about themselves in the process. 

We have achieved Silver for Rights Respecting School Award and will soon be aiming for Gold. As a whole school community, we incorporate this into our every day practice.


We believe giving children responsibility in the leadership of their school plays an important part in their development as positive BRILLIANT CITIZENS. Below are our current Unicef Councillors. This position required children to apply and to be democratically elected by the other children in their class.
