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 pupil voice – this is something we are really strong at in GGS (School Council, class meetings, Anti-Bullying Committee Prefects and Rights Respecting Ambassadors)   

This strength was highlighted in our most recent Ofsted inspection.

"Pupils are safe at school and are helped to stay protected beyond the school gates. They are proud to stand up for the school’s values of justice, equality and human rights. They behave respectfully towards all members of the school community. As a result, bullying is extremely rare. Pupils trust adults to sort out problems and concerns. Teachers listen to pupils, who are given a voice in the school." 

 Ofsted, July 2022

Our assembly program is primarily based on recognising, celebrating and informing students and staff about celebrating international days and weeks on the United Nations calendar.  

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 the Bronze Award when our journey started just over 10 years ago. We are currently in the process of re-assessing for the Gold Award which we first achieved in 2018. It is very rare for a secondary school to achieve this level of the award and there are currently only three in the whole of London.
