Rights Respecting Schools
Eastbury Community School is committed to the principles of equality, dignity, respect, non-discrimination, and participation. This can be seen in every aspect of school life: through the curriculum and extra- curricular activities, the school environment, student voice and leadership opportunities and the positive relationships which can be seen between all members of the school community.
In recognition of this Eastbury Community School achieved the Rights Respecting School Bronze Award in 2022 and we are currently working towards Silver.
UNICEFs Rights Respecting Schools Award programme recognises a school’s achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child into practice within the school and beyond.
We are committed to providing a range of opportunities for our students in all phases to develop the knowledge, understanding and skills to be informed, principled and active citizens by
- - Teaching and learning about rights.
- - Teaching and learning through rights- ethos and relationships.
- - Teaching and learning for Rights – participation, empowerment and action.
