Assumption Grammar School is proud to be involved in working towards achieving the Rights Respecting School Award. This Award (RRSA) recognises achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) at the heart of a school’s planning, policies, practice and ethos. The ideology underpinning the award fully supports our school Mission Statement and our ethos of supporting all pupils in becoming, “fully alive.”

A rights-respecting school not only teaches about children’s rights but also models rights and respect in all its relationships: between teachers/adults and pupils, between adults and between pupils.

We are currently in the process of applying for the Recognition for Commitment and hope to be working on achieving Level 1 from September.

What is the Recognition of Commitment?

To achieve this, a school must have;

  • A steering group composed of adults and children is formed to guide, promote and develop the RR initiative throughout the school.

  • An action plan has been completed and signed off by the principal.

  • Procedures are put in place for monitoring the impact of the initiative.

  • The RRSA is introduced to the school community – staff, pupils, governors and parents

Our Steering Group is currently in place but we would welcome any ideas, suggestions and involvement from parents and the wider community. If you would like to get involved or find out more, please contact Mrs J Kelly for more information or follow us on Twitter @AGSLLW/RRSA.
