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 BRONZE award and has begun the journey to SILVER of the Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA).


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

Standard A: Rights-respecting values underpin leadership and management

Standard B: The whole school community learns about the Convention on the Rights of the Child

Standard C: The school has a rights respecting ethos

Standard D: Children are empowered to become active citizens and learners
