Rights Respecting School Award

We are so excited to be at the beginning of our journey to working towards achieving the Rights Respecting Award - Bronze Level here at Whiston Willis.

What is the Award?

The Rights Respecting Schools Award puts children’s rights at the heart of schools in the UK.

Unicef works with schools in the UK to create safe and inspiring places to learn, where children are respected, their talents are nurtured and they are able to thrive. The Rights Respecting Schools Award embeds these values in daily school life and gives children the best chance to lead happy, healthy lives and to be responsible, active citizens.

Using the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) as a guide,  UNICEF  are working with more UK schools than almost any other organisation. Over 1.5 million children in the UK go to a Rights Respecting School and more than 4,500 schools up and down the country are working through the Award. Schools work with UNICEF on a journey to become fully Rights Respecting.

The Award recognises a school’s achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child into practice within the school and beyond.

May 2018 Update

We are now proud  to announce that we have achieved our Bronze Award!  We are at the beginning of our exciting journey to becoming a UNICEF UK Rights Respecting School. Our 'Steering Group' of children are now in place and have already started putting steps into place as we work towards achieving our Silver Award. We have also recently had staff training which has given us a clear plan moving forward towards to developing our school and developing citizens of the future.
