Unicef UK Rights Respecting School


We are becoming a Unicef UK Rights Respecting School!


Cottesbrooke Infant and Nursery School aims to be a school where children’s rights are at the heart of our ethos and culture, to improve well-being and to develop every child’s talents and abilities to their full potential. As part of this plan we are working towards recognition as a ‘Rights Respecting School’, an award given to schools on behalf of Unicef UK.

Unicef is the world’s leading organisation working for children and young people and their rights. In 1989, governments across the world agreed that all children have the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). These rights are based on what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfil their potential.

Our pupils will learn about their rights by putting them into practice every day.  A Rights Respecting School models rights and respect in all its relationships.  You will find information overleaf about the Rights we will be looking at in school.  This is a summary document on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

We really hope that you will be able to support our school on our journey towards becoming a Unicef UK Rights Respecting School. You can find a bit more about the Convention on the Rights of the Child by visiting unicef.org.uk/crc.

We have achieved the Bronze Award!

We are delighted to announce that just before Easter we were awarded the Bronze Award in Recognition of our Commitment by Unicef.  This is the first part of the RRSA (Rights Respecting Schools Award) journey.  We are now working on the Silver level, where we will work as a school to become aware of the rights of a child.

Launching Rights Respecting at Cottesbrooke Infant and Nursery School 

On Wednesday 5th May 2021, we will be having a launch day in school. All children in school will be involved in this special day. The children will be finding out about Unicef and the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child and they will begin to develop an understanding of their rights.


Check back after this event to find out more about the day.
