UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools Award
Chesnut Lodge is a Level 1 Rights Respecting School!!!!
We are extremely proud at being awarded Level 1 of the Rights Respecting Schools Award.
“The UNICEF UK Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) supports schools across the UK to embed children’s human rights in their ethos and culture. The award recognises achievement in putting the UN Convention on the Right of the Child (UNCRC) at the heart of a school’s practice to improve well-being and help all children realise their potential. The award is based on principles of equality, dignity, respect, non-discrimination and participation. The initiative started in 2006 and schools involved in the Award have reported a positive impact on relationships and well-being, leading to better learning and behaviour, improved academic standards and less bullying.”
Each class at Chesnut Lodge School has a “Charter” of children’s rights which we try to respect and follow each day. Check them out below.
