Courthill is a Gold Rights Respecting school!
The Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) recognises achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) at the heart of a school’s planning, policies, practice and ethos. A rights-respecting school not only teaches about children’s rights but also models rights and respect in all its relationships: between teachers / adults and pupils, between adults and between pupils.
We are extremely proud that Courthill Infant School is a UNICEF UK Gold Rights Respecting School which promotes the Rights and Responsibilities of all the community in the school.
It is granted by Unicef UK to schools that have fully embedded children’s rights throughout the school in its policies, practice and ethos, as outlined in the RRSA Strands and Outcomes.
To achieve Gold we were assessed by one of the Professional Advisers 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.
Rights Respecting accreditation is valid for three years.
