Rights Respecting School Award - UNICEF
December 2023 - Bronze Award
We are thrilled to announce that St. John's Primary and Nursery School has been awarded the Bronze Rights Respecting School Award, a testament to our commitment to fostering a culture of respect and understanding among our whole school community. This achievement reflects our dedication to incorporating the principles outlined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) into our school community.
The Bronze Rights Respecting School Award recognises our efforts in teaching children about their rights and responsibilities, as outlined by UNICEF. Through engaging and age-appropriate activities, we empower our students with the knowledge and understanding of the UNCRC, promoting a sense of social responsibility and global citizenship.
Our journey towards the Silver Award is a demonstration of our ongoing commitment to embedding the principles of the UNCRC further into our curriculum and school ethos. We aim to create an environment where every child's voice is heard, respected, and valued, fostering a sense of inclusivity and equality.
At St. John's Primary and Nursery School, we believe in nurturing compassionate and informed young minds who recognise the significance of human rights. Our dedication to the Rights Respecting School initiative aligns with our mission to provide a holistic education that not only focuses on academic achievement but also emphasises the importance of empathy, respect, and understanding.
We invite our school community, parents, and stakeholders to join us on this empowering journey as we work towards the Silver Rights Respecting School Award. Together, we can create an environment where the rights of every child are championed, and the principles of the UNCRC become an integral part of our school's identity.
