Rights Respecting School Award
At Ward Jackson Church of England Primary School we are a Rights Respecting School and are proud to say that we have achieved our Bronze Award. We are currently working towards our Silver Award. We feel that it is important for all children to be aware of their own and other children’s rights across the world and understand the responsibilities that everyone holds in delivering these effectively.
The award is supported by UNICEF who feel that it is important to:
‘Create safe and inspiring places to learn, where children are respected, their talents 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’.
We are working hard collectively as a school to embed RRSA into our everyday routines and put together a group of ‘RRSA Champions’ from across the school. They provide the pupil voice for the rest of our pupils; holding meetings, sharing ideas with their class members and working together to develop their ideas.
As a school, we are committed to preparing young people to be outstanding global citizens who demonstrate a committed attitude and respect the world around them. It is with this in mind, that we are a committed to achieving recognition from UNICEF and becoming a Rights Respecting School.
Take a look through our school website to see how we put rights into practice every day.
