Our new committee formed in 2022 is the Rights Respecting Schools Award group. This puts children’s rights at the heart of schools in the UK.
What is it?
The UKCommittee for UNICEF (UNICEF UK)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. Our 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 our guide, we are aiming to become a Rights Respecting School. 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.
