Rights Respecting School

Whitefriars School is a Rights Respecting School

The Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) recognises achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) at the heart of a school’s planning, policies, practice and ethos. A rights-respecting school not only teaches about children’s rights but also models rights and respect in all its relationships: between teachers / adults and pupils, between adults and between pupils.

A three year qualitative study by researchers at the Universities of Sussex and Brighton found that ‘The RRSA has had a profound effect on the majority of the schools involved in the programme.’
