We are delighted to have been awarded the UNICEF Rights Respecting School Award, Level 2. This is a very prestigious award and the assessment process was very rigorous. We are the first school in Southwark to have been awarded it.
Special thanks must go to Miss Hayfield for leading the application for the award and being a wonderful ambassador for the school’s rights respecting ethos. They were particularly impressed by the fact that all of the staff, parents, children and governors were actively involved. The assessors enjoyed meeting children, staff, parents and governors and have sent us a glowing 8 page report (please find attached). The report mentioned lots of things we do in school and directly quoted parents, staff and children – it’s well worth a read.

The assessors especially thanked EVERYONE for the warm welcome.
