Rights Respecting School
Bonner is accredited with the highest level of UNICEF UK’s Rights Respecting School Award at Gold - Rights Respecting.
The Rights Respecting Schools Award is granted to schools that show commitment to promoting and realising children’s rights and encouraging adults, children and young people to respect the rights of others in school.
We are proud to champion children’s rights and foster an ethos of respect, preparing our children to be conscientious global citizens who will make a positive impact on our society in the years to come.

Autumn Term Focus Articles
What is the UNCRC?
It is a list of children’s rights that all children and young people, everywhere in the world, have, no matter who they are, where they live or what they believe in.
The UNCRC has 54 articles, 42 rights are for children and young people up to 18 years of age. The others are all about how governments and adults should work together to make sure children and young people can access their rights.
Children’s rights are all the things that children and young people need to make sure that they are safe, have the things they need to survive and develop, and have a say in decisions that affect their lives.

Information Leaflet for Parents and Carers
Our steering group of children, staff and parents have worked hard to create an information leaflet for parents and carers to help them to understand the Rights Respecting Schools Award and how to support the children.
Children’s Rights and British Values
The aim of both of the Rights Respecting Schools Award and our school is to help children to respect the rights of others and to give them the best chance to lead happy, healthy lives and to be responsible active citizens.
Our rights respecting and school ethos and our school’s vision and values embed the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
