Rights Respecting Schools
Brompton Westbrook is a UNICEF Rights Respecting School (RRS) and are currently a Level 1 (silver award) school. We are working towards our gold award. A RRS not only teaches about children’s rights but also models rights and respect in all relationships between adults and pupils. As a whole school we learn about the United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). RRS also helps to build confidence, empathy and understand roles in the community and society. Children will learn about the UNCRC through all of the curriculum, with a particular emphasis on learning through PSHE and SEAL topics.

Click here for our Draft Policy Statement which states that whilst all the Articles are as important than another, we believe that Articles 12, 28 and 29, are central to putting rights into practice daily in our school.
Please click on the year group for details of how RRS is linked to learning across subjects:
Our RRS Steering Group has been consulting with Oliver Allen, the Director of Learning of the Westbrook Trust, to see where the Articles can be included in school policies especially in the areas of Teaching and Learning. We'll keep you posted as to how we progress this important work.
