UNICEF Rights, Respecting Schools Award
At Emsworth Primary School we are proud to have achieved Level 1 UNICEF Rights Respecting School Award. The principles behind this award and Article 29 in particular, are reflected in our everyday practice:
- Our curriculum is accessible to all pupils and responds to their needs as well as local and national issues. We actively promote tolerance, respect, equality and inclusion for our pupils, their families, our staff and the wider community. We aim to mimimise gaps in attainment to ensure that no pupils are disadvantaged. We measure the impact of this through summative and formative tools – surveys, progress and attainment data, quality of education monitoring and research based professional development. Pupil premium pupils make stronger progress than nonpupil premium pupils in the school and the most recent KS2 outcomes reflect that both groups currently make progress above national averages.
- Our behaviour management systems are based on mutual respect and positive motivation and include pupils’ perspectives through pupil governors and other key roles and responsibilities.
- Our curriculum and environment at Emsworth Primary aim to develop resilience and we have a well-established team led by a senior staff member who monitor well-being and mental health for pupils, staff and families at our school. We believe we prepare pupils well for their future education and life beyond.
- We have a robust and strong safeguarding culture at the school with clear processes and procedures. Our values are reflected in our systems and processes with pupil well-being at the heart of all we do.
