UNICEF Rights Respecting School

In 2019 we began our journey towards becoming a Rights Respecting School. The journey contains 3 stages – Bronze, Silver and Gold.

The award is given by UNICEF and focuses on promoting children’s rights within school.

December 2019 saw us achieve the first of the 3 awards – Bronze.
Our JLT of 20 members worked very hard to establish the opinions of pupils within school, and to make sure that those opinions were listened to by the adults in school.
We are now a “Rights Committed” school.
Since January 2020 we have been working towards achieving the Silver award – this will make us a “Rights Aware” school.

We have our own “Ozzie Owl” logo to support our UNICEF work, and have lessons devoted to this throughout the year.

We hope to achieve our Silver award by the end of this academic year.
