“You must never feel badly about making mistakes ... as long as you take the trouble to learn from them. For you often learn more by being wrong for the right reasons than you do by being right for the wrong reasons.” ―
Norton Juster, The Phantom Tollbooth

UNICEF – The Right’s Respecting School’s Award

At Parkfield School we have achieved the Level 2 Rights Respecting Schools Award, which is presented by UNICEF. 

UNICEF is the world’s leading organisation working for children and their rights. 

The UN Convention on the rights of the child details what countries must do in order for children to grow as healthy as possible, learn at school, receive protection, have their views listened to and are treated fairly. 

The award will teach pupils at Parkfield about the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child so that all children can do the very best they can. 

The RRSA recognises achievement in incorporating the Convention into a school’s planning, policies and practice. A rights-respecting school not only teaches about child rights but also models rights and respect in all its relationships – between teacher/adults and pupils, between adults and between pupils.
