Rights Respecting Schools
The Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) recognises a school's achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) at the heart of planning, policies, practice and ethos. A Rights Respecting School not only teaches children about their rights but also models rights and respect in all its relationships: between staff, parents and 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.
The work is closely linked to our PSE curriculum and our RESPECT ethos. We value each child irrespective of ethnicity, gender, religion, language, ability or family background.
