Welcome to the Birmingham Cohort of the UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools Award. This is a really exciting initiative that is already having a significant impact on building resilience with children and young people in Birmingham. Education and well-being of all children is at the heart of the award and most of the work you are already doing in schools aligns itself perfectly with the standards. There are 129 schools engaged with the RRSA and due to high demand, we are now able to offer further training.
You can register, access all information about the award including academic research, Ofsted quotes and free resources here: http://www.unicef.org.uk/rights-respecting-schools/
Overall, your school should have the opportunity to engage with three days of training provided by Birmingham City Council, representing a significant saving for your school. For those schools already engaged, there is an opportunity to catch up on missed days, or to attend focused sessions on how to move forward.
There are catch up dates on 27th May 2016 and 8th June 2016 which are listed separately on this site.
