The Rights Respecting Schools Award puts children’s rights at the heart of schools in the UK. Horsenden Primary School is proud to be working with UNICEF to create a safe and inspiring place to learn, where children are respected, their talents are nurtured and they are able to thrive.
UNICEF's Rights Respecting Schools Award embeds these values in daily school life and gives children the best chance to lead happy, healthy lives and to be responsible, active citizens. We gained our Bronze accreditation in December 2021 and are now working towards Silver accreditation. We are doing this by moving from learning about rights to learning through rights and for rights. We hope to achieve this through creating class charters, discussing articles in depth and exploring ways in which we can make a difference as global citizens.
The Horsenden Rights Rangers work as a school leadership team to help fellow pupils understand their rights under the UNCRC and to help encourage rights respecting behaviour in our school. As a team they take the lead in developing and delivering the schools action plan and feeding back to the school community about the progress we are making. Rights Rangers provide a link between pupils, teachers, the senior leadership team, governors and parents.

Rights Respecting Home Learning:
Horsenden's February half term home learning project was to find a creative way to portray some of the UNCRC's rights via a poster or a video. You can see some of the amazing work that pupils produced below. These pieces really highlight the Rights Respecting journey that we are on as a school!
