Level 1 Rights Respecting School

Rights Respecting SchoolsOn Tuesday 22/2/16 we were awarded our Level 1 Rights Respecting School Award.

Well done to all those involved.

So what does this mean?

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 their four standards and in our Expected Outcome's at Level 1.

Level 1 is awarded after an assessment visit by a Unicef UK assessor.

Achieving Level 1 means there is evidence that:


• your school is explicitly embedding the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child in its policy, practice and culture


•you are putting into action and developing the plans outlined on your Level 1 Audit and Action Plan which you submitted to get your ROC.


•you are beginning to see the positive impact of these actions on children and staff, and also on the school’s ethos, practice and environment


•you are promoting knowledge and understanding of the Convention throughout your school community


•children and young people are beginning to see themselves as rights-respecting global citizens and advocates for fairness and children’s rights locally and globally.

Our journey for Level 2 has now began!
