Rights Respecting Schools Initiative

Published

Mr Macmorran and some Year 6 pupils explained to the Broadway site what it meant to be a Rights Respecting School.

Some Year 6 pupils helped Mr MacMorran launch our Rights Respecting Schools Initiative on the Broadway site today. More details will be sent home in book bags tomorrow. 

The Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) recognises achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) at the heart of a school’s planning, policies, practice and ethos. A rights-respecting school not only teaches about children’s rights but also models rights and respect in all its relationships: between teachers / adults and pupils, between adults and between pupils.

Who is the Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) for?

 

The RRSA is a UK-wide initiative for all children and all those working with or for children in formal education. It is being successfully implemented in all settings – Primary, Secondary, Special Needs and Pupil Referral Units – across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
How does the RRSA link with other school initiatives?

The initiative unifies a range of educational priorities in all UK jurisdictions; the global dimension, SEAL (social and emotional aspects of learning), community cohesion and sustainable development.
