Rights Respecting School

UNICEF: Rights Respecting Schools Award 

At St Cuthbert's, we are committed to ensuring children’s well-being is at the heart of everything we do. We aim to help our pupils to grow into confident, caring and responsible young people, both in school and within the wider community. As part of this commitment, we are working with UNICEF as a Rights Respecting school. 


What is a Rights Respecting School?

In a Rights Respecting School, young people and the school community learn about children’s rights, putting them into practice every day.  The Award is not just about what children do but also, importantly, what adults do. In Rights Respecting Schools children’s rights are promoted and realised, adults and children work towards this goal together.


There are four key areas of impact for children at a Rights Respecting school;

  • Wellbeing
  • Participation
  • Relationships
  • Self-esteem


The difference that a Rights Respecting School makes goes beyond the school gates, making a positive impact on the whole community.


Where are we up to?

We have been awarded the GOLD: RIGHTS RESPECTING in December 2022. This is a big achievement for school community and we look forward to now working at maintaining this high standard of rights for our pupils.




Home learning 

As we continue to embed our Gold award, it is really important that the children learn about as many of their rights as possible. We have some weekly resources we would like to share with you to complete with your children. Each week will focus on a different article, and there will be a number of activities to complete that link with this right. As there are a wide range of activities available on the PowerPoint, your children can choose which ones they would like to complete.
