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.
Rights Respecting School Lead Louise Yildirim said: “I am so very proud of their achievement and how hard the staff and children have worked.”
Stranton’s new gold banner will be displayed outside school.
Executive Headteacher Neil Nottingham said: “I am delighted the hard work of the children and staff has been rewarded with such an accolade.
"To be awarded the Gold Status is something we can all be very proud of.”
