UNICEF Rights Respecting Silver School



Kingsway Junior School is very proud to have been awarded the UNICEF Rights Respecting Silver Award. We now continue our journey towards the Gold award, with our Rights Respecting Steering Group leading the way.


Rights Respecting schools create a safe and inspiring place to learn where pupils are confident and happy learners, where children are respected, their talents are nurtured and they are able to thrive. 


Our aim is to ensure that the Convention on the Rights of the Child underpins all that we do at Kingsway Junior School.  The award embeds these values in every day school life and gives pupils the opportunity to lead happy, healthy lives and to be responsible citizens.   

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
  • Children feel safe
  • Children have better relationships
  • Children become active and involved in school life and the wider world



The Rights Respecting Steering Group consists of pupil leaders from each class.  They are the voice for the school and work together to ensure these rights are understood, promoted and embedded in school life. They keep the school community updated via the school newsletter.

Why is equity so important?
