Great news!! St Matthew’s has successfully achieved the UNICEF UK Recognition of Commitment for a Rights Respecting School. This is a true recognition that we are well on our journey towards the Rights Respecting School Award and our next step is to achieve Level 1.
We are working together with Moss Park Infants and will be the first schools in Trafford to achieve the award.
The student council have worked really hard on coming up with an action plan for the next stage which is for St Matthew’s to achieve level 1 status.
What is the UNICEF UK Rights Respecting Schools Award?
The UNICEF UK Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) is based on principles of equality, dignity, respect, nondiscrimination and participation. The RRSA seeks to put the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child at the heart of a school’s ethos and culture to improve well-being and develop every child’s talents and abilities to their full potential. A rights-respecting school is a community where children’s rights are learned, taught, practised, respected, protected and promoted. Young people and the school community learn about children’s rights by putting them into practice every day.
