Sarisbury is a Rights Respecting SchoolWorking 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 Rights in Focus are Article 28 & 29:
Article 28 – You have the right to education.
Article 29 – You have the right to education which tries to develop your personality and abilities as much as possible and encourages you to respect other people’s rights and values and to respect the environment.
In our school, we support this right by:
Asking everyone to follow the Sarisbury Way
Making sure that our classrooms are safe and happy places to learn where we all aim to be ‘Sarisbury Learners’
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
