Rights Respecting School

Welcome to our 'Rights Respecting' page!


We've done it!! Crosby High has been awarded the highest accolade;

We are now a "Rights Respecting School" at Level 2


We are delighted to announce that having worked towards becoming a "Rights Respecting School" at Level 2 for two years, it was announced today by Unicef that Crosby High has achieved this fantastic award. The Level 2 award is quite prestigious and there are currently only 15 other schools in the whole of the North West who have achieved it (which includes all mainstream primary, secondary and special schools.) In Sefton there is only one other school who has this award (a primary school) so Crosby High is the first school to achieve this award in the North West in recent years which is amazing.

Crosby High achieved Level 1 status in July 2013. As a school we are committed to the rights of the child being upheld in all situations and the whole ethos of the school revolves around our pupils understanding their rights and that we, as a school community, ensure every pupil can access their rights every day; we are proactive in ensuring pupils voices are heard and their views are important.

Mrs. O'Donnell has been the driving force in achieving this accolade. She has led the whole school for over two years supporting us all to engage with the UN articles through lessons and visits and also leading us in our work with pupils in understanding the "Global Goals."
The full report is attached and I would encourage you to read it as you will then see how we have achieved this award.

Well done Mrs. O Donnell all the pupils of Crosby High and the whole staff team. This is a great start to our new academic year.
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
