Rights Respecting School

At Saint Bede’s, we always encourage the children to be respectful towards each other, staff, parents, governors and the local community. Respect is considered to be of such high importance that it is explicitly mentioned within our mission statement and is at the heart of the culture and ethos of the school. With this in mind, we have decided to work towards becoming a ‘Rights Respecting School’ and hope to gain a Level 1 Rights Respecting School Award from UNICEF by the end of this academic year.

UNICEF is the world’s leading organisation working for children and their rights. In 1989, governments worldwide promised all children the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. These rights are based on what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfil their potential.

Saint Bede’s 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, which helps improve the school community’s well-being and develop every child’s talents and abilities to their fullest potential.
