‘A truly inclusive school which has rights at its heart’
St Andrew’s CE Primary School is very proud to have been awarded a Level 2 Rights Respecting School Award by Unicef. This is the highest award in this category and is the result of several years’ hard work by staff, children, governors and parents.
The award uses the international UN Convention for the Rights of the Child as a basis to judge the performance of a school, including:
• How safe and valued children feel by each other and teachers
• How actively children are involved in their own learning
• How active children are in making decisions which affect them in the school
• How aware children are of the rights of all children and where these rights are not being met, either locally or internationally.

We have a school council who meet every half term to discuss current projects and ideas. The representatives have been elected by their class peers and the current membership is:
Kingfisher: Amber and Jamie
Owl: Henry and Daisy
Sika: Emma and Ahmad
Hedgehog: Audrey and Logan
Otter: Oakley and Jay
The meetings are supported by Hannah Wilson from the PTFA, Parent, Teacher and Friends Association.
