Rights Respecting School Award


Tobermore Primary School has started its Rights Respecting Schools Award journey. A Rights Respecting Schools Award puts children’s rights at the heart of school life, which is what we endeavour at Tobermore Primary School. 

As a school we are working with UNICEF UK to create a safe and inspiring place to learn, where children are respected, their talents nurtured and they are able to thrive. The Rights Respecting Schools Award embeds these values in daily school life and gives children the best chance to lead happy, healthy lives and be responsible, active citizens.


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. 

Together young people and the school community learn about children’s rights, putting them into practice every day. The Award is not just about what children do but also, importantly, what adults do. In Rights Respecting Schools children’s rights are promoted and realised, adults and children work together towards this goal.


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 happier 

*Children feel safe

*Children have better relationships 

*Children become more active and involved in school life and the wider world.

Mrs Speers works alongside the children as Rights Respecting Schools Award Co-ordinator.
