Rights Respecting School
The Rights Respecting Schools Award puts children’s rights at the heart of schools in the UK.
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. A 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.
Over 1.6 million children in the UK go to a Rights Respecting School and nearly 5,000 schools up and down the country are working through the Award. Our school will work alongside UNICEF to undertake 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. At Greenfield School, we are currently working on achieving the Rights Respecting Bronze Award.
