We did it!
Bourne achieved Level 2 Rights Respecting School Award from UNICEF in May 2018.
We are delighted to have achieved the Rights Respecting School Level 2 Award from UNICEF. As a Rights Respecting School, the values underpin our whole school philosophy, ethos, leadership and management.
The best interests of the child are a top priority in all our actions. Our school leaders are committed to placing the values and principles of the U.N. Convention at the heart of all policies and practice.
Rights Respecting values and an understanding of global citizenship and sustainability inform our practice.
The school has an inclusive and participatory ethos based on the Convention. This is made known to the children and adults, who use this to share understanding of work for global justice and sustainable living.
RRSA Ambassadors and adults collaborate to develop and maintain a Rights Respecting school community in all areas. Every child has the right to say what they think in all matters affecting them and to have their views taken seriously. Young people develop their confidence through their experience of an inclusive Rights Respecting school community, play an active role in their own learning and speak and act for the rights of all, to be respected locally and globally.
