Governments must make the Convention known to children and adults.

Sciennes: A Rights Respecting School

Sciennes Primary began our journey towards Level 1 accreditation of Unicef’s ‘Rights Respecting Schools Award’ in September 2015. We applied to be considered for the programme in October 2015 and were awarded a Level of Commitment Certificate soon after. Our blog:


documents our progress towards ensuring that everyone in our school community becomes aware of the Convention of the Rights of the Child and that we use it to underpin our values in embedding Rights Based Learning.

We will receive an inspection visit from Uncief’s Rights Respecting Schools on Wednesday 11th May, aiming to achieve a Level One Award.
