In 2017, Warninglid Primary School ( now Woodgate Primary) began its journey towards becoming a Rights Respecting School. We aim to create a school where pupil voice is valued and children learn about their role as citizens of the world, developing respect and tolerance. This work will be based on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of The Child.
What is the Rights Respecting School Award?
Unicef works with schools in the UK to create safe and inspiring places to learn, where children are respected, their talents are nurtured and they are able to thrive. Our Rights Respecting Schools Award embeds these values in daily school life and gives children the best chance to lead happy, healthy lives and to be responsible, active citizens.
Using the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) as our guide, we are working with more UK schools than almost any other organisation. Over 1.5 million children in the UK go to a Rights Respecting School and more than 4,500 schools up and down the country are working through the Award. Schools work with us on a journey to become fully Rights Respecting.
The Award recognises a school’s achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child into practice within the school and beyond.
