BRETTENHAM IS A UNICEF GOLD
RIGHTS RESPECTING SCHOOL
A Rights Respecting School is a community where children's rights of the
UNCRC are taught, learnt, practised, respected, protected and promoted. The UNCRC stands for United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and is a human rights treaty that has been ratified by our government and governments around the world.
A Rights Respecting School is a place where children can feel confident to use their voice to help make a difference.
We are extremely proud to be THE FIRST SCHOOL IN ENFIELD to achieve the prestigious Level 2 (Gold) of the Rights Respecting Schools Award.
The assessors from UNICEF were very impressed during their last visit and wrote a lovely report highlighting our achievements and on-going work.

The Convention has 54 articles that cover all aspects of a child’s life and set out the civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights that all children everywhere are entitled to. It also explains how adults and governments must work together to make sure all children can enjoy all their rights.
Every child has rights, whatever their ethnicity, gender, religion, language, abilities or any other status.
