Rights Respecting School Award

UNICEF is the world’s leading organisation working for children and their rights, collaborating with schools in the UK.

UNICEF creates safe and inspiring places to learn, where children are respected, their talents are nurtured, and they are able to thrive. The Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) embeds these values in daily school life and gives children the best chance to lead happy, healthy lives. 

This award is granted to schools that show commitment to promoting and realising children’s rights and encouraging adults, children and young people to respect the rights of others in school.

At Charles Darwin Primary we work very hard to support our pupils to understand, appreciate and uphold their own rights and that of other children, through discussions, assemblies, campaigns and a range of activities.

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) is at the heart of all that we do at Charles Darwin Primary, and we are proud to be a school that adopt these values and promotes them within our school community. Together young people and the school community learn about children’s rights, putting them into practice every day.
