School gains first stage of Award

1st November 2016
The school has just successfully achieved the Unicef UK Recognition of Commitment (ROC) for our rights-respecting work. This is the first of 3 stages to achieve and we intend to gain Level 1 by the end of the Summer Term 2016.

The award recognises achievement in putting the UN Convention on the Right of the Child (UNCRC) at the heart of a school’s practice to improve well-being and help all children and young people realise their potential.

The award is based on principles of equality, dignity, respect, non-discrimination and participation. The initiative started in 2006 and schools involved in the Award have reported a positive impact on relationships and well-being, leading to better learning and behaviour, improved academic standards and less bullying.
