At Northside we currently have the Bronze Rights Respecting Schools Award and are working on achieving the silver award.
The Rights Respecting Schools Award puts children’s rights at the heart of schools in the UK.
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. The 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.
We use the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) as a thread throughout our curriculum and policies to ensure that all children's rights are respected and celebrated.
