Unicef Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA)
Unicef (United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund) is the world’s leading organisation working for children and their rights and we are part of a community of over 4,000 schools in the UK working on the Rights Respecting Schools Awards. Rights Respecting Schools across the country have reported that that the Award has many positive impacts including improved relationships, well-being and self-esteem, leading to better attendance and improved learning. We are delighted that Hall Green Infant School has achieved the bronze and silver Awards so far and will be working towards achieving the gold award (RRSA).
We hold a Parents Steering Group that meets termly to ensure that:
· the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) underpins our values and decision making in school
· the whole school learns about the CRC and respects the rights of others
· children are empowered to become active learners and active local and global citizens.
At the last Parents Steering Group, our parents discussed Children's rights in the community and helped to produce the Unicef badge and sew it onto the jumpers of the children who are members of the Unicef RRSA School Council.
If you are interested in joining our Steering Group and would like to be more involved with our learning about Children’s Rights, please contact the school office for details. We would love for many parents to be part of our Group and support the school in becoming a fully Rights Respecting place for our children to grow and develop.
