We did it!

Bourne achieves Level 1 Rights Respecting School Award from UNICEF.

On Tuesday 18 November 2014, Bourne achieved Level 1 Rights Respecting School Award from UNICEF.

Will Jackson and Anita Haigh, UNICEF assessors, carried out a detailed assessment of our school community through a series of meetings with staff, parents, governors and students. The assessment also covered meetings with the Senior Leadership of the school and the Bourne4Rights steering group.

It was fascinating to hear the comments from the assessors – they noted how all groups could give examples of our commitment to Children’s Rights in class, in the canteen, on trips and on the field. It was clear to them that we are purposefully stepping forward and setting a direction for our school.

The next stage will take us to Level 2 – so watch out for more developments.
