UNICEF RRSA Silver Award
The past two years has been a journey for the Wyvil community, as we strive to ensure that pupils, staff and all stakeholders are aware of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. We at Wyvil recognised the importance of children being made aware of their rights, to enable them to be active citizens of the future.
Wyvil welcomed the UNICEF team in the last week of the Summer term, to judge the work that has been carried out to support our pupils’ understanding and to assess the impact of our work . The RRSA team spent the whole morning at Wyvil, visiting classrooms and interviewing parents, pupils, staff and governors. The assessors were hugely positive about the pupil's understanding of the articles and we are proud to announce that Wyvil has been accredited with the Level 1, Rights Respecting Schools Award.
A huge thank you to all involved, not only in the assessment day ( RRSA Steering group, parents , staff and governors) itself but in the day to day promotion of such an important charter. For now the journey continues to level 2, and thinking beyond our school community, to the wider world!
