St Paul’s CE Primary School has been awarded Rights Respecting School GOLD status, which is the highest stage of the Rights Respecting Schools Award (after Bronze: Rights Committed and Silver: Rights Aware).

It is granted by Unicef UK to schools that have fully embedded children’s rights throughout the school in its policies, practice and ethos, as outlined in the three RRSA Strands:

Strand A- Teaching and learning about rights

Strand B- Teaching and learning through rights (ethos and relationships)

Strand C- Teaching and learning for rights (participation, empowerment and action)

At St Paul’s, we are committed to placing our Christain values, faith and principles of the Convention on the Rights of the Child at the heart of our policies and practice. It is important to us that children recognise their rights but also acknowledge the rights of others. Understanding that link is at the heart of our school ethos.

As well as this approach shaping the needs of our own pupils and creating a Rights Respecting community, we aim to use this shared understanding to work for global justice and sustainable living.

The duty bearers (adults) at St Paul’s respect, protect and promote the rights of the rights holders (children) in their daily practice.


What are Children's Rights?

The United Nations Convention of the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) is a legally binding agreement followed by the majority of countries. It describes what children need to survive, grow up and develop their full potential.

All children everywhere in the world are entitled to the 45 articles contained in the convention.

The Convention also explains how adults and governments must work together to make sure all children enjoy all their rights.
