The Level 1 Rights Respecting Schools Award

St Thomas More are happy to say that we have been awarded Level 1 of the Rights Respecting Schools Award and we are awaiting the logo to be sent to us so we can include it with our other awards on our homepage.

The Level 1 Award is granted by Unicef UK to schools that show good progress towards embedding children’s rights in the school’s policy, practice and ethos, as outlined in our four standards and in our Expected Outcomes at Level 1.

Well done to all of our pupils, expecially the UNICEF ambassadors, as they have made this achievement possible!

Achieving Level 1 means there is evidence:

  • your school is explicitly embedding the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child in its policy, practice and culture
  • you are putting into action and developing the plans outlined on your Level 1 Audit and Action Plan which you submitted to get your ROC.
  • you are beginning to see the positive impact of these actions on children, young people and staff, and also on the school’s  ethos, practice and environment
  • you are promoting knowledge and understanding of the Convention throughout  your school community
  • children and young people are beginning to see themselves as rights-respecting global citizens and advocates for fairness and children’s rights locally and globally.
