UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools Award
We are very proud to be the first school in Ireland recognised to a gold standard for our children's rights policies. Congratulations to all involved in this huge achievement!
What is the UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools Award?
UNICEF’s Rights Respecting Schools Award works with schools to create safe and inspiring places to learn, where children are respected, their talents are nurtured and they are able to thrive.
UNICEF’s Rights Respecting Schools Award embeds children’s rights in daily school life and empowers children to grow into responsible active global citizens.
With support from UNICEF’s child rights education team, Rights Respecting Schools put in place a set of standards based on equality, dignity, respect, non-discrimination and participation.
As a result, the Rights Respecting Schools Award transforms whole schools into places where children enjoy learning, feel safe, nurtured and in control of their future.
