December 2017


Mrs. Yildirim delivered a staff meeting to inform staff about the Rights Respecting School Award and look at what actions that we need to put in place in order to apply for the Recognition of Commitment (ROC).


The Rights Respecting School Award (RRSA) is an initiative run by UNICEF UK, which encourages schools to place the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child at the heart of its ethos and curriculum. This means that we teach children about their rights according to the United Nations Convention.



Stranton Primary School are currently working towards the first part of the award which is the Recognition of Commitment (ROC). We have put together a steering group who will help to work towards the award and have a RRSA display board up in school.
