The Rights Respecting Schools Award puts children’s rights at the heart of schools in the UK.
Unicef works with schools in the UK to create safe and inspiring places to learn, where children are respected, their talents are nurtured and they are able to thrive. Our Rights Respecting Schools Award embeds these values in daily school life and gives children the best chance to lead happy, healthy lives and to be responsible, active citizens.
The Award recognises a school’s achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child into practice within the school and beyond.
Healthy Schools London – Bronze Award
We all want to help children stay healthy and happy as they grow up. In this context, what happens at school every day is really important. Schools can help children lead a healthy lifestyle directly – to make healthy food choices at lunchtime, to be active at and on the way to school. More widely, schools can help children learn about their health, and develop their motivation and self respect to make healthy choices. The benefits go beyond health. We know that when children are healthy and happy at school, they can achieve more.
Blair Peach Primary & Nursery School has been awarded the Healthy Schools London Bronze Award for our achievements in supporting the health and well-being of our pupils.
