Norfolk is Rights Respecting!
UNICEF is the world’s leading organisation working for children and their rights. In 1989, governments worldwide promised all children the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). These rights are based on what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfil their potential. These are rights that all children have. They cannot be taken away and it is adults who have the responsibility to ensure their rights are met.
The ‘Rights-Respecting School’ approach helps our pupils to grow into confident, caring and responsible young citizens, both in school and within the wider community. By learning about their rights, our children also learn about the importance of respecting and standing up for the rights of others.
We are thrilled that we have been awarded a Bronze Accreditation and are now working towards Silver.
