Rights Respecting Schools Award
Worden now has taken the first step towards our "Rights Respecting Schools Award". We have just been given the "Recognition of Commitment" from UNICEF which means we have been recognised as serious about the RRSA and are now eligible to use the RRSA logo on anything we do.
The student council have worked really hard on coming up with an action plan for the next stage which is for Worden to achieve level 1 status.
What is the UNICEF UK Rights Respecting Schools Award?
The UNICEF UK Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) is based on principles of equality, dignity, respect, nondiscrimination and participation. The RRSA seeks to put the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child at the heart of a school’s ethos and culture to improve well-being and develop every child’s talents and abilities to their full potential. A rights-respecting school is a community where children’s rights are learned, taught, practised, respected, protected and promoted. Young people and the school community learn about children’s rights by putting them into practice every day.
