Rights Respecting School



Archibald Primary School has both registered and is working towards accreditation for the award of Rights Respecting School. This award demonstrates our commitment to ensuring children have access to fair and equitable practice and celebrating diversity and equality across our organisation. The best interests of the child are and remain our top priority in all that we do.

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.
