Rights Respecting Schools Award
Rye Community Primary School is proud to be a Rights Respecting School having gained our Recognition of Commitment. We are now working towards our Level 1.
Our steering group meets every month to discuss events, progress and next steps. Our group includes; pupils, SLT, teachers, parents and other members of staff.
The children have chosen six articles from the UN Convention on the Right of the Child, as shown in the image below.
What is the Rights Respecting Schools Award?
“The UNICEF UK Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) 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 (UNCRC) at the heart of a school’s practice to improve well-being and help all children realise their potential. The award is based on principles of equality, dignity, respect, non-discrimination and participation. The initiative started in 2006 and schools involved in the Award have reported a positive impact on relationships and well-being, leading to better learning and behaviour, improved academic standards and less bullying.”
