GOLD Rights Respecting School Award
Glasshouses Primary School aims to be a school where every aspect of a child is focused on and developed, including the area of wellbeing. As part of our school’s aim to promote a happy and successful school, we have just been awarded the GOLD Rights Respecting School Award. This is an award which is given to schools on behalf of UNICEF.

UNICEF is the world’s leading organisation working for children and their rights. In 1989, governments worldwide promised all children the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). These rights are based on what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfil their potential.
The ‘Rights Respecting School’ award (RRSA) will help our pupils to grow into confident, caring and responsible young citizens both in school and within the wider community. By learning about their rights, our pupils also learn about the importance of respecting the rights of others i.e. their responsibilities.
Our external assessor says:
“Congratulations to all the children and adults concerned at Glasshouses Primary on achieving the Gold Award. The rapid progress the school has made since registering and achieving Bronze in May 2018 is fantastic, well done.”
