Rights Respecting Schools

Rights Respecting Schools at Chingford C of E Primary



 At Chingford Church of England Primary we aim to be a school where children’s rights are at the heart of our ethos and culture, to improve well-being and to develop every child’s talents and abilities to their full potential. 


As a Church of England school we have a Christian vision that promotes the philosophy of


 ‘"Don't look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too."  (Philippians 2:4)


This inclusive vision permeates every aspect of our school life encouraging excellence, aspiration, care and empathy in all our stakeholders; of looking out not only for our interests, but also the interests of others; in short, of taking care of each other underpins all that we do. 


This ethos links directly to the Unicef UK’s Rights Respecting Schools Award and we are very pleased that we have been awarded the second stage of Award (RRSA) which is Silver: Rights Aware: The Silver award is granted by UNICEF UK to schools that show good progress towards embedding children’s rights in the school’s policy, practice and ethos, as outlined in the RRSA Strands and Outcomes 


There are three strands to the award: teaching about rights, teaching through rights and teaching for rights.

 Unicef is the world’s leading organisation working for children and young people and their rights. In 1989, governments across the world agreed that all children have the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC).


These rights are based on what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfil their potential.


It is underpinned by four principles:


1. Non-discrimination

2. Commitment to the best interests of the child

3. The right to life, survival and development

4. Respect for the views of the child




 Chingford Church of England Primary pupils are learning about their rights by putting them into practice every day.  A Rights Respecting School models rights and respect in all its relationships.


We are always striving to create the best possible learning environment for our children at our school and this achievement shows that we are committed to promoting and realising children’s rights and encouraging adults, children and young people to respect the rights of others in school.
