Rights Respecting School Award
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.
In February 2018, Stranton Primary School successfully achieved the first stage of the RRSA. We are now Bronze Committed. We are now working towards the second part of the award which is Silver Rights Aware.
The Rights Respecting steering group is made up of different members of staff and the School Council Rights Respecting Rangers.
