As a Rights Respecting School, we take part in a number of campaigns and fundraising events as well as developing our part in the community and listening to the children's ideas and opinions. Check out our pages on the left to explore our different areas of being a Gold Rights Respecting School.
In July 2018, we received the brilliant news that we have been awarded our Gold award for Rights Respecting. We are very proud to be the first school in Kent to receive this award. In 2016 we achieved our Level 1 Rights Respecting award. Through our engaging and creative curriculum, we teach children about their rights as stated in the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child. We provide opportunities for children to exercise their rights and to be social activists. Our Children are inspired and encouraged to become change-makers who feel passionate about campaigning and raising awareness of global and local issues.
Being a Rights Respecting School has allowed the community at Seal to create an environment which is respectful, nurturing and safe. Our Children thrive on a curriculum which allows them to have ownership, to have a voice and to be engaged in purposeful learning.
As stated by UNICEF, 'there are four key areas of impact for children at a Rights Respecting school; wellbeing, participation, relationships and self-esteem. The difference that a Rights Respecting School makes goes beyond the school gates, making a positive impact on the whole community'.
