WE ARE GOLD!

Just before the Easter break we welcomed two assessors from UNICEF who had come to see if we should be awarded the highest accolade from UNICEF – the GOLD Rights Respecting Award. Over the Easter holidays we received official confirmation that we are now the holders of this prestigious award.

Our children did us proud. They spoke with eloquence to the assessors and left them in no doubt about how they know about children’s rights and how they live them.

Our school parliament led the assessors through the day and made sure that they saw and heard everything we do to support children’s rights in Corpus Christi. The assessors also spoke to Staff, governors and parents to get their views.

 

Thank you so much for your support during this journey which will continue to develop and grow. There is always more to do!
