Rights Respecting Schools

“It’s important to learn our rights and to respect other people’s rights too.”

Rights Respecting Schools

“Not everyone is getting their rights, like not all children can go to school, so we learn how we can help other people too.”

Article 42

You have the right to know your rights!
Adults should know about these rights and help you learn about them, too.

The UNICEF UK Rights Respecting Schools Award supports schools across the UK to embed children’s human rights in their ethos and culture.

The Award recognises achievement in putting the UN Convention on the Right of the Child (CRC) at the heart of a school’s practice to improve wellbeing and help all children and young people realise their potential.

The Award is based on principles of equality, dignity, respect, non-discrimination and participation. Together, young people and the whole school community learn about children’s rights, putting them into practice every day. The Award is not just about what children do but also, importantly, what adults do. In a Rights Respecting School, children’s rights are promoted and realised; adults and children work towards this goal together.

We have two Rights Respecting Mascots at Broomfield, Roary the Tiger and Ralph the Raccoon. Roary and Ralph are visible in lots of different places around our school, highlighting where children’s rights are being respected every day.
