The rights ambassadors are the drivers for delivering children’s opinions across the school. A pupil said: “The ambassadors make sure we get our rights”.
What is a UNICEF Rights Respecting School?
Together young people and the school community learn about children’s rights, putting them into practice every day. It is not just about what children do but also, importantly, what adults do. In Rights Respecting Schools children’s rights are promoted and realised, adults and children work towards this goal together.
There are four key areas of impact for children at a Rights Respecting school; wellbeing, participation, relationships and self-esteem.
The difference that a Rights Respecting School makes goes beyond the school gates, making a positive impact on the whole community.
- Children are healthier and happier
- Children feel safe
- Children have better relationships
- Children become active and involved in school life and the wider world

We are extremely proud to be have been recently awarded the Unicef Silver Award’, which means that we are officially a 'Rights Aware' School. The Unicef assessor who visited us was impressed by our student's knowledge of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child' and in our progress so far in embedding it within our policy, practice and culture.
We are now working towards becoming a Gold UNICEF Rights Respecting School, where a Rights Respecting ethos will be at the heart of everything, we do at Chorlton Park Primary School.
