Local schools on ‘Rights Respecting’ journey

Local schools are among more than 100 in Cardiff which are on their journey to becoming Rights Respecting.

The UNICEF Right’s Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) recognises schools that put children’s rights into practice – creating a safe and inspiring place to learn, where children are respected, their talents are nurtured, and they are able to thrive.

87% (111) of Cardiff’s local authority schools have registered for the RRSA programme.

73% (93) of these schools have an RRSA action plan in place having received their bronze, silver or gold award.

64% of all pupils from nursery to high school, attend a school with Bronze or above.

Among our local schools to achieve levels of the award are:

Gold: Coed Glas Primary, Ysgol Y Wern Primary, Christ The King RC Primary

Silver: Whitchurch High, Whitchurch Primary, Coryton Primary,

Bronze: Llanishen High, Birchgrove Primary, Ton Yr Ywen Primary, Thornhill Primary.

Registered: Rhiwbina Primary, Llanishen Fach Primary.

Cardiff launched its Child Friendly Strategy in 2018 placing the rights and voices of children and young people at the heart of the city’s policies, strategies and services.

It also supports the council towards Cardiff’s aim of being internationally recognised as one of the UK’s first UNICEF UK Child Friendly Cities, an ambitious programme that sees councillors, council staff and local organisations working to ensure that children and young people help shape and guide decisions which affect them.

UNICEF is the world’s leading organisation working for children and their rights.

The UNICEF UK Rights Respecting Schools initiative is aimed at schools across the UK, including those in an early years setting.
