Children's rights are central to all aspects of UNICEF's work and we are working to make sure that the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child is embedded into all our work.
A Rights Respecting School teaches about children's rights but also models rights and respect in all its relationships.
Oakwood Primary School has Level 1 of the Rights Respecting Schools Award. Our home-school agreement is based on everyone respecting these rights and all adults making sure children's rights are protected.
For a school to be accredited, it must show evidence that it has reached all four of the following standards:
- Standard A: Rights-respecting values underpin leadership and management
- Standard B: The whole school community learns about the Convention on the Rights of the Child
- Standard C: The school has a rights respecting ethos
- Standard D: Children are empowered to become active citizens and learners
