Staff and pupils at Stranton Primary School are celebrating after achieving Gold status in Unicef’s Rights Respecting School Award.

Unicef stated in their report: “It was evident that children’s rights are embedded across the school and underpin every facet of school life.”

Pupils took part in initiatives including supporting charities, leading assemblies, litter picking, producing a child-friendly school improvement plan, and writing to their MP about litter.
