What does it mean to be a Rights Respecting School?

A Rights Respecting School, is a school that embeds the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC or CRC) in their practices to improve well-being and help all children to realise their potential.

What is the UNCRC?

The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, or UNCRC, is the basis of all of Unicef’s work. It is the most complete statement of children’s rights ever produced and is the most widely-ratified international human rights treaty in history. 

The Convention has 54 articles that cover all aspects of a child’s life and set out the civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights that all children everywhere are entitled to. It also explains how adults and governments must work together to make sure all children can enjoy all their rights.  See here for a list of all the articles. 

In 1989, governments worldwide promised all children the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, also known as the CRC or UNCRC. The Convention changed the way children are viewed and treated – in other words, as human beings with a distinct set of rights instead of as passive objects of care and charity.

These rights describe what a child needs to survive, grow, and live up to their potential in the world. They apply equally to every child, no matter who they are or where they come from. 

UNICEF RRSA Silver Award

Niton Primary School has received the prestigious UNICEF UK Award

Niton Primary School has be awarded the Silver Rights Respecting School Award by UNICEF UK.UNICEF is the world’s leading organisation working for children and their rights.

The Rights Respecting Schools 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. Silver is given to schools that make excellent progress towards embedding the principles of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child into its ethos and curriculum.
The Award recognises achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child at the heart of a school’s planning, policies and practice.

A Rights Respecting School is a community where children’s rights are learned, taught, practised, respected, protected and promoted.
Using the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) as our guide, 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, active citizens.
