In July 2018 Greet was recognised as a being a Rights Aware school by UNICEF. Our Silver Award acknowledges that our school community is fully aware of the articles enshrined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UN CRC) and that these articles are reflected in the school's ethos, practice and envirnoment.

Quotes from Greet's July 2018 Silver Accreditation Report

 

'The senior leadership team are totally committed to a rights respecting ethos and believe that it has had a positive impact on the school community.' 

UNICEF RRSA Greet Accreditation Report, July 2018

 

'Children at the school have a very good knowledge and awareness of the Convention. They are able to recite particular articles and are clear that they unconditional and universal. Children demonstrate and awareness of where and why some children may not be able to access their rights.'

UNICEF RRSA Greet Accreditation Report, July 2018

 

'Student leadership is a strength in the school and pupils are able to voice their opinions and make decisions. Through Curriculum Studies pupils are encouraged to have more collaboration and pupil led approaches. The School Council has organised voting, for instance when they selected charities to support, to increase pupil participation. Through rights respecting, members of the student council have taken part in debates and delivered speeches at the Birmingham City Council.'

UNICEF RRSA Greet Accreditation Report, July 2018
