Rights Respecting School Award
At Green Gates Primary School, we always encourage the children to be respectful towards each other, staff, parents and the local community. With this in mind, we are proud to announce that we have become a ‘Rights Respecting School’.
We have already achieved Silver Award: Rights Aware. We are now working hard to achieve Gold!
UNICEF is the world’s leading organisation working for children and their rights. In 1989, governments worldwide promised all children the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. These rights are based on what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfil their potential.
Our pupils have learned about their rights by putting them into practice every day. A Rights Respecting School models rights and respect in all its relationships, which helps improve the school community’s well-being and develop every child’s talents and abilities to their fullest potential.
