Kirklevington Primary School was awarded Gold by Unicef UK’s Rights Respecting School programme in Summer term 2022.

Unicef is the world’s leading organisation working for children and their rights. The Rights Respecting Schools Award is granted to schools that show commitment to promoting and realising children’s rights and encouraging adults, children and young people to respect the rights of others in school. Gold is the highest accolade given by Unicef UK and shows a deep and thorough commitment to children’s rights at all levels of school life. There are over 400 schools across England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales that have received Gold.

Head of School, Mrs Lewis said: “We continue to be proud to be a Rights Respecting School and we are delighted to have maintained the UNICEF Gold Award. This reflects the hard work from all staff and the fantastic ways our children champion rights, across the school. We see the positive impact on children’s learning and their fantastic behaviour and we are delighted to be preparing children to be global citizen’s for the future. This greatly supports our work on British Values.

The Award recognises achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child at the heart of a school’s planning, policies and practice.  A Rights Respecting School is a community where children’s rights are learned, taught, practised, respected, protected and promoted.
