Unicef Rights Respecting Schools

Here at Brompron-Westbrook we are a Unicef Rights Respecting School.  Mrs Marie works with the steering group which is made up of children from across the school.  Our children have played an increasingly leading role in driving progress. We are very pleased to say that we are a GOLD RRS and are very proud of that fact.  

The school was assessed by a UNICEF advisor who looked at the whole school’s rights respecting work and the impact that has been made through embedding children’s rights into school life.

The UNICEF website tells us  ... 

"There are three stages to the Rights Respecting Schools Award. Its transformative and rigorous approach means the journey to the highest stage can take up to four years.

Together young people and the school community learn about children’s rights, putting them into practice every day. The Award is not just about what children do but also, importantly, what adults do. In Rights Respecting Schools children’s rights are promoted and realised, adults and children work towards this goal together.

There are four key areas of impact for children at a Rights Respecting school; wellbeing, participation, relationships and self-esteem.

The difference that a Rights Respecting School makes goes beyond the school gates, making a positive impact on the whole community.

  • Children are healthier and happier
  • Children feel safe
  • Children have better relationships
  • Children become active and involved in school life and the wider world "

Achieving the Gold Award was a great moment for our school community; it was the point at which we really become a Rights Respecting School. From that point forward, we were expected to maintain all the things we have learnt about our  rights, through rights and for rights and we want to sustain our commitment to being a rights based community.

"At BWPS we have a School Council made up of children from around the school.  We have maths ambassadors, reading ambassadors and a lot more.  However there is one particular group that I am going to be telling you about.  The Steering Group (although we are not called ambassadors) is a group of people who talk about rights and use key vocabulary such as equity which means the quality of being fair. 

In this group we have meetings held by Mrs Marie.  We learn about rights and we are currently learning a song that we can hopefully present when we have a Steeing Group assembly."
