A UNICEF Rights Respecting School

At St. Mary’s we are passionate about embedding Unicef’s Rights Respecting Schools programme into our school ethos. All the adults in our school community are committed to ensuring that our children’s rights are upheld and respected through teaching and learning activities and by participating in national and global initiatives.

During the last academic year, 2019, we were awarded the Bronze Committed award and we plan to achieve our Silver, Rights Aware accreditation this current academic year.

This child centred award scheme will provide our children with the knowledge of their human rights and responsibilities, empower them to make their local and global communities better, improve their well-being and behaviour as well as instilling in them a sense of dignity and respect for themselves as well as for others.
