Rights Respecting School

Welcome to our 'Rights Respecting' page!

Crosby High is a 'Rights Respecting' level 1 school who are currently working towards our level 2 award.

The Rights Respecting School Award is based on UNICEF’s United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).  We have put this convention at the heart of our school’s culture and ethos.  This helps us to improve well-being and to develop every child’s talents and abilities to their fullest potential, equipping pupils to become 'Rights Respecting' global citizens.


What is a Rights Respecting School?

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 (CRC). These rights are based on what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfil their potential.

 The aim of the ‘Rights Respecting School’ award (RRSA) is to help our pupils to grow into confident, caring and responsible young citizens both in school and within the wider community. By learning about their rights our pupils, your children, also learn about the importance of respecting the rights of others i.e. their responsibilities.

Our school have focused on the following articles this year;

Article 6: You have the right to play and be healthy – Healthy Schools Week

Article 12: You have the right to give your opinion and for adults to take it seriously- UNICEF Steering Group  

Article 24: You have the right to the best healthcare, safe healthcare and nutritious food- Day for Change
