After our recent assessment, we are very proud to announce that the school has been awarded Rights Respecting Gold Status, which is the highest stage of the Rights Respecting Schools Award. It is granted by Unicef UK to schools that have fully embedded children’s rights throughout the school in its policies, practice and ethos, as outlined in the three RRSA Strands.
The award is testament to the hard work of all the staff, children and members of the school community and we are very thankful!
The assessors noted some particular strengths which really stood out during their visit:
- Confident and articulate children who are very knowledgeable about rights.
- All relationships in the school are positive and respectful. The whole school community has made
effective use of rights based language and an understanding of the Convention to drive and
maintain improvements in behaviour.
- The school has a strong reputation locally for its inclusive ethos both in terms of ensuring equal
access to education for children with SEND and in creating a welcoming and non-discriminatory
environment for children from all cultures and backgrounds.
- Strong leadership and support from staff, parents and governors in being a Rights Respecting
