Bronze: Rights Committed- Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA)
May 2018

Congratulations to all the young people and adults concerned at The Hayes Primary School on achieving Bronze - Right Committed

Frances Bestley, Programme Director , Rights Respecting Schools Award


Achieving the Bronze: Rights Committed means there is evidence that:

  • We have introduced the RRSA Three Strands into our school community
  • Our school’s senior leadership team (SLT) understands what is involved in the Award and is committed to embarking on the Unicef UK rights respecting journey
  • The right foundations are in place for our school’s journey to the second stage of the Award, Silver: Rights Aware


There are four key areas of impact for children at a Rights Respecting school; wellbeing, participation, relationships and self-esteem. The difference that a Rights Respecting School makes goes beyond the school gates, making a positive impact on the whole community.


Children are healthier and happier

By promoting the values of respect, dignity and non-discrimination, children’s self-esteem and wellbeing is boosted and they are less likely to suffer from stress. A child who understands their rights understands how they and others should be treated and their sense of self-worth is strengthened.


Children feel safe

The Rights Respecting Schools Award gives children a powerful language to use to express themselves and to challenge the way they are treated. They are also able to challenge injustices for other children. Children and young people are empowered to access information that enables them to make informed decisions about their learning, health and wellbeing.


Children have better relationships

Both with their teachers and their peers, based on mutual respect and the value of everyone’s opinion. In a Rights Respecting school children are treated as equals by their fellow pupils and by the adults in the school.  Children and young people are involved in how the Award is implement in the school but are also involved in strategic decision-making; in decisions about their learning; and in views about their well-being.


Children become active and involved in school life and the wider world

This builds their confidence to make informed decisions. They have a moral framework, based on equality and respect for all that lasts a lifetime, as they grow into engaged, responsible members of society. Children and adults develop an ethos and language of rights and respect around the school. Rights and principles of the Convention are used to put moral situations into perspective and consider rights-respecting solutions – this all has a huge impact on relationships and well-being. Children and young people get very involved in raising awareness about social justice issues, both at home and abroad. They become ambassadors for rights and take part in campaigns and activities to help to bring about change.


"Since becoming rights respecting our children feel happier, safe and confident and are ready to learn"
