At The Oval School, we have achieved a Gold standard in the UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools Award. This is the highest stage of the Rights Respecting School Award and is a fantastic reflection of the UNICEF work carried out at The Oval School by pupils and all adults who work with them.
This transformative award supports teachers to talk to children of all ages about the big issues facing the world today, from such things as the refugee crisis to climate change and the impact of the global pandemic. There are three stages to the Rights Respecting Schools Award. Its transformative and rigorous approach means the journey to the highest stage can take up to four years.
