We are extremely proud to achieve the prestigious Recognition of Achievement of the Rights Respecting Schools Award this year.
“The UNICEF UK Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) supports schools across the UK to embed children’s human rights in their ethos and culture. The award recognises achievement in putting the UN Convention on the Right of the Child (UNCRC) at the heart of a school’s practice to improve well-being and help all children realise their potential. The award is based on principles of equality, dignity, respect, non-discrimination and participation. The initiative started in 2006 and schools involved in the Award have reported a positive impact on relationships and well-being, leading to better learning and behaviour, improved academic standards and less bullying.”

Weoley Castle Nursery has a steering group headed by Katy Wood (Deputy Head Teacher) who meet regularly to discuss the impact of the charter and all the articles on the children's well being and the ethos of the school.
We also collect evidence and display it on our website to show everyone how proud we are to be part of this commitment.
