UNICEF Rights Respecting School

Bryn y Deryn and the Carnegie Centre work alongside UNICEF and are a Silver Rights Respecting School.

There are four key areas of impact for children at a Rights Respecting school; wellbeing, participation, relationships and self-esteem.

The difference that a Rights Respecting School makes goes beyond the school gates, making a positive impact on the whole community.

  • Children are healthier and happier

  • Children feel safe

  • Children have better relationships

  • Children become active and involved in school life and the wider world

Rights Respecting Schools put children's rights a the heart of schools. The UK Committee for UNICEF (UNICEF UK) works with schools in the UK to create safe and inspiring places to learn, where children are respected, their talents are nurtured and they are able to thrive.

Using the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) as their guide, UNICEF are working with more UK schools than almost any other organisation. Over 1.6 million children in the UK go to a Rights Respecting School and nearly 5,000 schools up and down the country are working through the Award. Schools work with UNICEF on a journey to become fully Rights Respecting.

The Award recognises a school’s achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child into practice within the school and beyond.

By being a Silver rated school we ensure that:


  • The United Nations Convention of the Rights of a Child is known to children, young people and adults who use this shared understanding to work for improved child wellbeing. school improvement, global justice and sustainable living.

  • Actions and decisions affecting children are rooted in, reviewed and resolved through rights. Children, young people and adults collaborate to develop and maintain a school community based on equality, dignity, respect, non-discrimination and participation; this includes learning and teaching in a way that respects the rights of both educators and learners and promotes wellbeing.

  • Children are empowered to enjoy and exercise their rights and to promote the rights of others locally and globally. Duty bearers are accountable for ensuring that children experience their rights
