Rights Respecting School Award
At George Green’s, we are very proud that we are a Rights Respecting School. Awarded by UNICEF, the Award recognises that which puts the United Nation Convention at the heart of everything they do. The award scheme is an effective way of inspiring and supporting schools, ensuring the school respects the rights of others with a strong focus on the pupils’ voice – this is something we are really strong at in GGS (School Council, class meetings, ABC, Charity Champions, Pupil Partners, Prefects, and Rights Respecting Ambassadors).
Widely-regarded impacts of the award include improved self-esteem, well-being, behaviour and relationships, positive attitude towards diversity, support for global justice and young people become more engaged in discussing, planning and reviewing their own learning. We were the first secondary school in London to achieve Level 1 and currently looking forward to our Level 2 assessment in January 2018.
