Sarisbury is a Rights Respecting School

Working and learning together


United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child

Children’s rights are central to all aspects of UNICEF’s work and at Sarisbury, we are working to ensure that the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child is embedded into every aspect of our school’s life.

A Rights Respecting School teaches about children’s rights but also models rights and respect in all its relationships.


Sarisbury currently holds the SILVER award and has begun the journey to GOLD of the Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA).

This week’s Right in Focus is Article 27:

Every child has the right to a standard of living that is good enough to meet their physical, social and emotional needs. Governments must help families who cannot afford to provide this.


In our school, we support this right by:

Offering healthy school lunches

Offering a safe school environment in which to be happy and healthy

Having staff that listen when you need support


For a school to be accredited, it must show evidence that it has reached all four of the following standards:

Strand A: Teaching & learning about rights

Strand B: Teaching & learning through rights – ethos and relationships

Strand C: Teaching & learning for rights – participation, empowerment and action
