Rights Respecting Schools Award
We are working towards recognition as a 'Rights Respecting School', an award given to schools on behalf of Unicef UK. We have already achieved the first stage of the award, Bronze: Rights Committed.
Unicef is the world's leading organisation working for children and young people and their rights. In 1989, governments across the world agreed that all children have the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). These rights are based on what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfil their potential.
Bute Cottage Nursery School pupils will learn about their rights by putting them into practice every day. A Rights Respecting School models rights and respect in all its relationships.
