Rights Respecting Schools

UNICEF created the Rights Respecting Schools accreditation scheme to acknowledge schools that are committed to putting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child at the centre of the school ethos.

At Ryders Hayes, we are proud to incorporate the convention into the very fabric of the school to enable us to improve every child’s well-being, encourage their talents and abilities, to realise each child’s potential and to equip each child to become rights-respecting citizens in their own right. Everyone, including staff and pupils, promotes the rights of children but we also instill in the children that rights also come with responsibility. The school has the expectation that each pupil takes their responsibilities as young citizens seriously.

Ryders Hayes has now received the UNICEF Gold Award – the first school in the area- Rights Respecting accreditation to demonstrate our commitment to the rights of children.

Ryders Hayes has adopted the UN charter as a school-wide agreement.


"The Unicef assessor recognised that this Rights Respecting School is a community where ‘children’s rights are learned, taught, practised, respected, protected and promoted."

"Ryders Hayes Primary School has very much impressed us with the way in which children learn in an environment that encourages and empowers them to make a difference both at home and around the world."

Programme Director, Frances Bestley
