Rights Respecting School

 

Northwood is a Gold Level Rights Respecting School (RRS).  The Rights Respecting School Award is based on UNICEF’s United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).  We have put this convention at the heart of our school’s culture and ethos.  This helps us to improve well-being and to develop every child’s talents and abilities to their fullest potential, equipping pupils to become Rights Respecting global citizens.

 

Everyone at Northwood actively promotes the rights of the children at Northwood and we expect all pupils to take their responsibilities very seriously.

 

We first made a commitment to becoming a Rights Respecting School in 2013 and were very proud when, in April 2016, UNICEF's RRS Assessor visited the school, and, following a rigorous assessment, granted Northwood the Level 1 (Silver) RRS accreditation.  

 

We are very proud to announce that Northwood has now been awarded Gold level RRS status. This is a tremendous recognition of all the hard work from both children and adults alike over the past three years.  The Rights Respecting ethos is truly embedded in all that we do, and this has been recognised by the Unicef Assessor who visited us in November 2018.

 

Thank you for all your support.

Please take time to read them, and whenever you are in school do take a look at the Rights Respecting School displays in the hall and library.

As part of our RRS work we support various charities, both local, national and international.  Details of our fundraising initiatives for 2017/18 can be found here:
