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 this. 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 this look like at William Tyndale?

Pupil Voice

Our Pupil Voice is a group of approximately 40 children from across the school and is made up of a group of smaller sub-committees:

  • School Council
  • Playground Leaders
  • Shed Monitors
  • Lunch Hall Monitors
  • Eco-Team

Children from Year 1-6 are voted for democratically and are in office for a year. They attend weekly meetings either in their sub-committees or as the whole Pupil Voice. They consult with classmates about issues in the school community as well as campaigns and global issues. Their contributions play an important role in school improvement at William Tyndale, in the local community and the wider world.
