What is a Rights Respecting School?
In the words of a pupil from a Primary Rights Respecting School: "A Rights Respecting School is a place where we can all feel confident with ourselves and it encourages us to use our voice. It's a safe environment where everyone feels comfortable. We know we have to respect each other's opinions and theyhave to respect yours too. Every child is treated the same in our school and we're all special in our own way! A Rights Respecting School is a place where everyone cares for each other. It has helped me build my confidence. It has helped me raise awareness of injustice in the world."
A Unicef UK Rights Respecting School is a community where children’s rights are learned, taught, practised, respected, protected and promoted. Children and young people and the school community learn about children’s rights by putting them into practice every day. The Award is not just about what children do but also importantly what adults do – in Rights Respecting Schools, children's rights are promoted and realised and adults and children work towards this together.
