Rights Respecting School Award
At Stranton Primary School we are a UNICEF Rights Respecting School and at the heart of our ethos are the values of the Convention on the Rights of a Child.
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.
Here at Stranton Primary School, we achieved the 'Recognition of Commitment (ROC)' award in February 2018. This is the first stage of the Rights Respecting Award, which we achieved by showing our commitment and our intentions of becoming a Rights Respecting School. Since then, we have been working extremely hard to ensure we have built a 'rights respecting environment'.
In February 2019, we were awarded the Silver: Rights Aware logo in the second stage of the ‘Unicef Rights Respecting Schools Award' - one step closer to the Gold Award! We have been working hard to promote the values and principles of the 'United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child' and using it to underpin our vision for school improvement. We have been developing this approach to build upon our values-based learning, continue positive cultural development and create an even better atmosphere where everyone in the school is respectful of each other. The Rights Respecting steering group is made up of different members of staff and the School Council Rights Respecting Rangers.
