We are incredibly proud to announce that Gorsey Bank has received UNICEF UK’s Rights Respecting Schools Award at the highest level.
The school achieved the Gold award, which is based on principles of equality, dignity, respect, non-discrimination and participation and recognises communities where children’s rights are learned, taught, practised, respected, protected and promoted.
We are delighted that the assessment of our school has found that:
“Children feel valued and included” and that “the school places children’s social and emotional well-being high on their agenda through a programme of activities covering both physical and mental health.”
The report also comments that “there is a strong commitment to children’s rights from leaders at all levels, tied to the visions and values of the school.” and that “ the children have engaged in a number of campaigns and events to promote not only their rights but the rights of all children locally and globally.”
We are extremely proud that the ethos, values and philosophy of our wonderful school have been recognised and take pride in the nurturing and supportive environment we provide to all the children in our care.
You can read more about our Rights Respecting activities on our webpage and if you are a prospective parent looking to apply for your child’s primary school place, please join us for an open day on Friday 5 November at 9.30am to see life at Gorsey Bank in action and to find out more about the school.
