School is getting even closer to obtaining rights respecting award

RESPECTING rights is at the heart of a Felpham school.

Felpham Community College has successfully achieved the UNICEF UK recognition of commitment for its hard work and commitment towards obtaining the rights respecting schools Award (RRSA).

Michelle Kelly, assistant headteacher, said: “The rights of the child lie at the heart of all we do in education and this award not only raises awareness of those rights but looks at developing an ethos of respect throughout the college where all feel valued and make a genuine contribution to our community.”

The school is making strong headway towards achieving the RRSA, with final assessment for the level one award booked for spring next year.

The school has a RRSA steering group which includes staff, parents and governors who are all committed to embedding the ethos of the award.

Work is also being co-ordinated by the school’s student ambassadors who have put in huge amounts of time and effort and who have shown commitment and dedication to helping the school achieve the award.
