The Rights Respecting Schools Award puts children’s rights at the heart of schools in the UK. North Ridge School has been a Rights Respecting School since 2012.
We are accredited with the Level 2 Rights Respecting Schools Award. The Award recognises a school’s achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child into practice within the school and beyond.
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. Our 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.
At North Ridge everyone learns to use the language of rights, respect and responsibility. All staff at school model the language of Rights and how to respect one another’s rights. At North Ridge, we recognise that being a Rights Respecting school is a continual journey, continually changing and adapting to the individual needs of the pupils and staff. We have used learning and understanding about rights as part of our behaviour management strategies making strong links between pupils values, rights, choices and responsibilities.
