We are very pleased to tell you that we have recently been awarded the second stage of Unicef UK’s Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) Silver award.
We are always striving to create the best possible learning environment for our children and this achievement shows that we are committed to promoting and realising children’s rights and encouraging adults, children and young people to respect the rights of others in school.
Our steering group with representatives from each class have worked hard to ensure that: the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) underpins our values and decision making in school the whole school learns about the CRC and respects the rights of others children are empowered to become active learners and active local and global citizens.
Unicef (United Nations Children’s Fund) is the world’s leading organisation working for children and their rights and we will be joining a community of over 4,000 schools in the UK working on the Rights Respecting Schools Award. Right Respecting Schools across the country have reported that that the Award has many positive impacts including improved relationships, well-being and selfesteem, leading to better attendance and improved learning.
You can find out more about the Unicef, the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Rights Respecting Schools Award from the RRSA website www.unicef.org.uk/rrsa
We will keep you informed about our rights-respecting journey through our website, newsletters and events.

Law Primary School and North Berwick Nursery aims to be a school where children’s rights are at the heart of our ethos and culture, to improve well-being and to develop every child’s talents and abilities to their full potential. As part of this plan we are working towards our silver award recognition as a ‘Rights Respecting School’, an award given to schools on behalf of Unicef UK.
Unicef is the world’s leading organisation working for children and young people and their rights. In 1989, governments across the world agreed that all children have the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). These rights are based on what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfil their potential.
Law Primary School and North Berwick Nursery pupils will learn about their rights by putting them into practice every day. A Rights Respecting School models rights and respect in all its relationships.
We really hope that you will be able to support our school on our journey towards our silver award becoming a Unicef UK Rights Respecting School. It would be great if you could spend a few minutes finding out a bit more about the Convention on the Rights of the Child by visiting unicef.org.uk/crc.
