Rights Respecting School Award


At Cleveden, working with UNICEF UK,  we have started our journey to become a Rights Respecting School.  UNICEF is the world’s leading organisation that  works for and promotes children’s rights.  The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child is an important agreement made by governments worldwide to uphold and protect children’s rights.

A Rights Respecting School is a school where children and young people’s rights are respected, promoted and protected by everyone.


The Rights Respecting School Award involves staff and young people:


  • Teaching and learning: ABOUT the rights set out in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. 


  • Teaching and learning: THROUGH rights so that everyone respects the rights of others.


  • Teaching and learning: FOR the rights of others so that we stand up for rights and help make our school, our local and global community a fairer place.


We have already achieved success!  Very quickly after embarking on the programme all the good practice we currently are doing to ensure the rights of our young people are adhered to has been recognised and we have achieved Bronze accreditation.



Now that we have successfully achieved Bronze, we are aiming for Silver (and hopefully Gold).  To achieve the  Silver Award we need to looker deeper in the conventions of the Rights of the Child and fully embed them within our policies, daily practice and culture/ethos of our school.
