Rights Respecting School

Rights Respecting Schools Award

The Rights Respecting Schools Award puts children’s rights at the heart of schools in the UK.

A Rights Respecting School is one where children and teachers are respected and where their talents are nurtured.

UNICEF 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 and active citizens.

There are three levels to the Award:

Bronze: Rights Committed
Silver: Rights Aware
Gold: Rights Respecting

St Augustine’s is currently working towards achieving its Rights Respecting School Bronze Award.

On their journey to become a Rights Respecting School, pupil will work with teachers every step of the way. Pupils will be exploring the meaning of respect and how they can model respectful behaviour in everyday life environments.

Progress so far:

  • A PowerPoint has been produced and will be presented to pupils during Tutor Time.
  • A school newsletter article has been written to notify everyone in the school community about this initiative.
  • We have revamped UNICEF Rights of the Child Articles and linked to our school’s Aims and Visions.
  • We have produced posters to promote positive behaviour.
  • We have written this article for the school website.

What does this mean for St Augustine’s High School?

  • Children become active and more involved
  • Children will have better relationships with teachers
  • Children will be healthy and happy
  • Children will feel safe
