Rights Respecting Schools Award

At Strangford College we are delighted to have achieved our Silver UNICEF’s Rights Respecting Schools Award. We are now in the process of obtaining the Gold Award.

A Rights Respecting School is a place where students feel safe and confident in the fact that their rights are being advocated for. We are a school that has fully embedded children’s rights into our school ethos. We believe that students and staff working together and respecting each other’s rights will result in the following being improved:

  • Learning
  • Self-esteem
  • Well-being
  • Confidence
  • Appreciation of community

In order to achieve our Gold Award, we are acknowledging that across the world, some people do not have access to their rights. We are using our voices to help the wider community and beyond;working towards the Global Goals as seen below.
