Rights Respecting School Award

Linden Lodge School is working towards the first stage of the Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA). The award, run by UNICEF, “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”. There are three stages to becoming a Rights Respecting school and this journey can take a number of years to fully embed in the school’s culture and curriculum.

For more information on the Rights of the Child (CRC), please see the UNICEF website.

School Charter

One of the key projects that we have been working on during this academic year is to update the school charter. This document, which outlines the student’s rights, is underpinned by the fundamental articles of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

The charter has been written after consultation with a broad range of students and staff across the school, ensuring all stakeholders had the opportunity to exercise their right to an opinion (Article 12 of the CRC) and felt they have been given the chance to contribute to this vital document.  The charter is now displayed in every classroom as a reminder of Linden’s Rights Respecting ethos.

The current charter is available as a PDF here
