NOVEMBER 2012: FANTASTIC NEWS - WE HAVE BEEN RECOGNISED AS A RIGHTS RESPECTING SCHOOL – Read about the report on our success through the link below


Rights Respecting School

At the Federation of Abbey Schools we have been learning about the Unicef Rights of the Child by working with the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). This document outlines all the rights children have regardless of where they live. We know that all children have these rights which guarantee them what they need to survive, grow, participate and fulfil their potential. Unfortunately, for some children these rights are denied. We have also learned about the responsibilities we have to ensure that these rights are met and have received recognition.

What is the RRSA?

The RRSA recognises our achievement in putting the Convention on the Rights of the Child at the heart of our planning, policies, practice and ethos. By taking these steps, we are helping improve well-being and develop every child’s talents and abilities to their potential. A rights respecting school not only teaches about children's rights but also models rights and respect in all its relationships.


Our rights respecting school is one where:

  • young people gain self-esteem by learning about the rights they have from birth and build from there;
  • children learn the difference between wants and needs;
  • young people learn that rights bring responsibilities for adults and children;
  • everyone learns to use the language of rights, respect and responsibility;
  • adults and young people model rights-respecting behaviour and language;
  • children become active global citizens;
  • children gain a powerful voice.
