With so many schools to choose from what makes us different?
- Rights Respecting Schools Awards (UNICEF)
- School of Sanctuary
- Fair Trade
- Eco-Schools (to be re-launched in Autumn 2020)
WE ARE A UNICEF RIGHTS RESPECTING SCHOOL!
The Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) recognises achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) at the heart of a school’s planning, policies, practice and ethos. We Respect Rights & Recognise Responsibilities!
WE ARE A SCHOOL OF SANCTUARY
We were the first school in Craven to be recognised as a ‘School of Sanctuary’, a school that is committed to being a safe and welcoming place for all, especially those seeking sanctuary. This could be people whose lives were in danger in their own country, who have troubles at home or are just looking for a space of safety. A School of Sanctuary is a school that helps its students, staff and wider community understand what it means to be seeking sanctuary and to extend a welcome to everyone as equal, valued members of the school community. It is a school that is proud to be a place of safety and inclusion for all.
WE ARE A FAIRTRADE SCHOOL!
Our school has set up a Fairtrade School Steering Group and adopted a wholeschool Fairtrade Policy. We have the support of the board of Governors and the Policy is signed by the Headteacher. We are committed to selling, promoting and using Fairtrade products as much as possible. Our school promotes and takes action for Fairtrade at least once a term.
