We are a Gold Rights Respecting School!

Well done to all the children, staff, parents and carers and governors who have helped us on the journey to achieving our reaccreditation. This confirms our ongoing commitment to children’s rights. We are the first school in Islington to receive this fantastic award!

What does this mean?

This award is granted by Unicef UK to schools that have fully embedded children’s rights throughout the school in its policies, practice and ethos, as outlined in the Rights Respecting Schools Award Strands and Outcomes. Achieving Gold Rights Respecting School Award means:

Our school has explicitly adopted a child rights approach based on the United Nations Conventions on the Rights of the Childand has embedded it in school policy, practice and culture.

Children, young people and adults in our school have a thorough understanding of child rights, and rights respecting attitudes and language are embedded across the school.

RRSA has had a positive impact on children and young people's learning and wellbeing. Students see themselves as rights respecting global citizens and are advocates for social justice.

What does pupil voice look like at William Tyndale?

The Green Group

Our Green Group is our school council and is a group of 22 children from Years 1 - 6. They are elected democratically by their class members and are in office for 2 years.

The children came up with the name and what it stands for.

G - gold

R - rights respecting

E - equal

E - enthusiastic

N - network

They wanted to make it more of a network so that it has the opportunity to join with other groups in the school when needed.

The word green comes from our school colour and the idea of growth and being environmentally aware.

The Green Group members attend meetings with teachers and community members about school and local issues. They consult their classmates and bring their ideas to the group. Their contributions play an important role in school improvement at William Tyndale and in the local community.
