Rights Respecting Schools

The Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) recognises achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) at the heart of a school's planning, policies, practice and ethos. A rights-respecting school not only teaches about children's rights but also models rights and respect in all its relationships: between teachers / adults and children, between adults and between children. 

Who is the Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) for? 
The RRSA is a UK-wide initiative for all children and all those working with or for children in formal education. It is being successfully implemented in all settings - Early Years, Primary, Secondary, Special Needs and Pupil Referral Units - across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. 

Kylemore Nursery School was successful in achieving a Rights Respecting School Award at Level 1 in June 2010. We celebrated with a beach party in the nursery for all children, parents, governors and staff. The Certificate was presented by Dolores Davidson and Daphne Wilson. A wonderful time was had by all.
