UNICEF Rights Respecting School


What it means to be a UNICEF Rights Respecting school

About the Rights Respecting Schools Award

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

The UK Committee for UNICEF (UNICEF UK) 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. Their 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.

The Kings of Wessex Academy has applied for the Bronze Award as the first step on a journey to becoming fully accredited as a UNICEF Rights Respecting school
