UNICEF RRSA GOLD AWARD
From 2015 - 2018, a journey for the Wyvil community, was to strive to ensure that pupils, staff and all stakeholders were made aware of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
We at Wyvil recognise 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 2018, to judge the work 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 were proud to announce that Wyvil was accredited with the hugely prestigious Gold standard award (Please read the report here).
We look forward to thinking in more detail about Global Goals and how we can help improve the future for generations ahead.
The journey continues with the School Council, our steering group, leading the school in our continued awareness of the rights of children near and far. Soon, we will be going through the reaccreditation process, showcasing how we still fully embed the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child at Wyvil.
