Rights Respecting Schools

Rights Respecting Schools at St John Lloyd Primary School


We are delighted to announced that we have achieved the Rights Respecting GOLD Award. This is the highest award in the UNICEF Programme and was the result of lots of hard work put in by our pupils, parents, governors and staff.


The GOLD award mean that our school has fully embed children’s rights throughout our policies, practice and ethos. It also means that our pupils have also taken part in practical action projects which have helped protect children’s rights around the world both locally and globally.


At the GOLD Award, the UNCIEF Assessor noted the involvement of staff, children and the whole school community in learning about the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) and how working towards the Silver Award was included in the School Improvement Plan as a priority under Wellbeing. It was also recognised that all children interviewed in the focus group and lessons were enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the CRC and could name a range of rights, including the Article number. They were able to explain the value of a right to themselves and others. Our children talked knowledgably about how the school facilitates them to enjoy their rights and how class charters engaged them in respecting each other and introducing the articles.
