Rights Respecting Schools – Going for Gold!

Washwood Heath Academy has begun its campaign to become a Rights Respecting School.  Since January 2019, Washwood Heath Academy has been officially recognised by UNICEF as a Silver ‘Rights Aware School’.

It means the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child permeates everything we do from Primary through to Sixth Form.

It means that our students understand their rights and their need to respect the rights of others. This is inherent in our Anti-bullying Pledge.

It means that all duty bearers at Washwood Heath Academy are committed to ensuring dignity and equity for our entire school community.

This is reflected in our assemblies, in our lessons, in our enrichment activities and every part of our Academy life to enable us to fulfil our vision and give our students the best preparation for adult life.
