A Shoreditch primary school has been awarded the gold standard award by leading human rights charity Unicef.
Shoreditch Park Primary was given the accolade by the charity’s Rights Respecting School programme, which is given to schools that commit to promoting and realising kids’ rights.
The gold standard indicates a deep and thorough commitment to children’s rights at all levels of school life. Some 460 have been given out across the UK.
Project director Frances Bestley said: “It is clear the whole school has embraced a culture based on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
“Shoreditch Park is a very inclusive school where children report feeling valued and safe irrespective of their background.
“Pupils also have many genuine opportunities to have their views heard and influence key aspect of school life, in turn creating a positive learning environment. It was clear children had an excellent grasp of children’s rights and social justice.”
